Is Danazol safe for pregnant or breast-feeding women?

No, danazol is not safe for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding because the medication may harm the baby. Danazol can cause serious birth defects if a fetus is exposed to this medication in the womb. Because of this, you should not take danazol if you're pregnant or want to become pregnant. In fact, women should only start taking danazol during menstruation or after being tested to make sure they're not pregnant. While on danazol, women should use a non-hormonal type of birth control (such as condoms or diaphragms) to ensure they won't become pregnant. If you do become pregnant while on danazol, stop taking the medication and talk to your doctor right away. Danazol may also affect breast milk and cause problems for a breastfeeding baby, so women should talk to their doctors before breastfeeding if they're on danazol.
