Are there any risks in taking Danazol?

As with many medications, there are certain risks associated with taking danazol. One of the most significant risks is associated with pregnancy. Danazol may cause birth defects and developmental problems in the fetus. Women who are pregnant should not start taking danazol, and if you are taking danazol, you should use a non-hormonal form of birth control, such as condoms or diaphragms. Danazol may also lead to dangerous side effects, especially if you're taking certain medications or have a history of certain medical conditions. Talk to your doctor before taking danazol if you have a history of heart disease, liver or kidney problems, cancer or stroke. You should also let your doctor know of any medications you're taking, since some may increase the risk for side effects of those medications and of Danazol.
