Spironolactone and pregnancy

I just found out that im 5weeks pregnant. I had been taking spironlactone 50mgs, and scared that it may harm my fetus, especially if male. Since I found out, I have stopped taking the medications. The Dr tells me that the dosage was pretty low, and that I have nothing to worry about. But, I have always been told, that if I got pregnant while on Spironolatcone, that I should consider termination. Funny thing was, I was on BCP and Aldactone, and I got pregnant. Can anyone give me any insight to my worries and concerns.

Re: Spironolactone and pregnancy

I am sorry I don't have any insight, but I am concerned about the same thing. I think I may be pregnant and was taking spironolactone. I stopped a few weeks ago , but I read somewhere that you should allow 2 months. I wasn't trying to get pregnant so I didn't stop for that. Have you gotten any answers yet? I wish you the best!

Re: Spironolactone and pregnancy

Pradadgirl, I am too surprised that if you took your bcp like you should that you got pg. What bcp were you on? Did you ever skip sometimes? I would def ask for another opinion and yes you were on a low dose. Did that dose actually clear you up? You can get online and read about it more. Also their are some online sites that answer you questions. I believe that you have to pay but not much. good luck and you should be concerned

Re: Spironolactone and pregnancy

PradaGirl- did you find anymore info? I too am pregnant at six weeks and have been taking 75mg of Spironolactone. I am worried about the side effects and cannot seem to find any info on the web that might help. I only find drug warnings and "talk to your doctor". Please let me know if you have any insight.
