  • Gonal f, Menopur, steroids while breastfeeding

    Hi,
    I need to take the following:
    - Prednisolone 15mg x 1 per day (for 4-12 weeks)
    -Gonal-f 150 x 1 per day (for 7-10days)
    -Menopur 150 x 1 per day (for 7-10days)

    Is it safe to take the medication while breastfeeding 18 month old baby girl?

    Joanna:

    Prednisolone is probably OK.
    Gonal F is just Follicle Stimulating Hormone, same as is secreted monthly in a female. Its Ok.
    Menopur Is totally unabsorbed in the infants GI tract. Should be OK.

    However, I still don't think its advisable to continue to breastfeed while undergoing this kind of therapy. Breastfeeding may block your ability to get pregnant.
