If I take oxandrolone (Oxandrin) will it harm my baby?

Yes. Because oxandrolone is made from testosterone, when it crosses the placenta to reach the fetus, it can cause a female fetus to develop masculine features and impair future fertility. Oxandrolone has been assigned to Pregnancy Category X by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which means that there is strong evidence that oxandrolone causes fetal harm if you take it during pregnancy. You should also refrain from nursing while taking this medicine.

You should consider preventing pregnancy through birth control or abstinence while taking this medicine.
