Testosterone Pregnancy Warnings
If reversible oligospermia occurs, the androgen can be
discontinued and if restarted, a lower dosage should be utilized.
Testosterone has been assigned to pregnancy category X by the
FDA. Androgen use, particularly during the first trimester of
pregnancy, causes virilization of the external genitalia of the
female fetus. Reversible oligospermia may occur after prolonged
androgen administration or excessive dosage. There are no controlled
data in human pregnancy. Testosterone use is considered
contraindicated during pregnancy.
Testosterone Breastfeeding Warnings
There are no data on the excretion of testosterone into human
milk. Because many drugs are excreted into human milk and because of
the potential for adverse effects on the nursing infant, a decision
should be made whether to discontinue nursing or discontinue the
drug, taking into account the importance of the drug to the mother.
