Pregnancy and Rogaine


Question: My husband and I have been using Rogaine 5% for about 5 yrs now. If we are thinking about having a child, when do I need to stop using Rogaine? And what about my husband?

Answer: Your husband does not have to stop taking Rogaine (minoxidil), it should not effect the pregnancy in any way. As for you, that is a conversation you should have with your obstetrician. I, personally, never advise a pregnant woman to take any drug. This does not mean that all drugs are unsafe. This is a decision between you and your doctor. Good Luck, Dr. Robert Jones.
