Angela,

The safety of this product in pregnancy has not been adequately established and its recommended only to use this medication during pregnancy (or think you may be pregnant) on the advice of your gynae (or ask gynaedoc). Although various sources state that studies in women in their second or third trimesters have demonstrated no ill effects, the recommended action would still be to ask your gynae first.
