Androderm and Pregnancy

Can Androderm Be Used by My Partner While I Am Pregnant?

It appears that the risk of testosterone exposure when Androderm is used by a male partner is low. The backing on the Androderm patch prevents any contact with the active medication. Therefore, transfer of testosterone from the patch is unlikely.
 
However, if you notice any signs of possible testosterone exposure, such as deepening of the voice, significant increases in acne, or changes in body hair, contact your healthcare provider right away. Also, in order to reduce the risk of inadvertent testosterone exposure from the Androderm patch, take care not to touch the patch before it is applied, or after it is removed.
 

Final Thoughts

Androderm is not approved for use in women. In addition, it can harm an unborn baby if used during pregnancy. Therefore, if you are pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant, let your healthcare provider know immediately. You should not use Androderm if you are or may become pregnant.
