We are planning our baby after 3 to 4 months.Now I want to know Is it safe using this lotion before pregnancy. Will it harm to pregnancy or my baby? I am really confuse should I use it or not.Because nothing is important than a baby's & mother's safety.I dont want any complications during pregnancy. I hope you will understand my problem.I would be grateful if you help me out. Thanks

Minoxidil is a good option but its usage in pregnancy is generally not recommended. It is pregnancy category C (Category C is with caution if benefits outweigh risks. Animal studies show risk and human studies not available or neither animal nor human studies done.) So you can see the risks involved. You can improve your diet and lifestyle that will help. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
