Enzyte and Pregnancy

Although no clinical studies have been conducted on Enzyte and pregnancy, it is believed that several of the active ingredients of the supplement are unsafe for pregnant women. For example, bee pollen and ginkgo biloba may stimulate uterine contractions, possibly increasing the risk of miscarriages or premature labor. Enzyte has never been shown to be safe (or effective) in any users, male or female.

An Overview of Enzyte and Pregnancy

The label for Enzyte® (an herbal supplement used for "natural male enhancement") states that pregnant women should not take the supplement. Several of the active ingredients in Enzyte may not be safe for pregnant women.
 

Is Enzyte Safe During Pregnancy?

The following active ingredients in Enzyte may possibly cause problems during pregnancy:
 
  • Bee pollen -- may stimulate uterine contractions (possibly increasing the risk of miscarriages or premature labor)
  • Horny goat weed -- may have testosterone-like activity, which could harm a developing fetus
  • Ginkgo -- may stimulate uterine contractions, may affect hormones, and can increase the risk of bleeding
  • Ginseng -- may theoretically cause birth defects (based on animal studies of a certain compound in ginseng)
  • Tribulus terrestris extract -- may theoretically have a negative impact on fetal development (based on animal studies)
  • Saw palmetto -- affects certain hormones and might cause abnormalities of the external genitalia of male fetuses.
  •  
For several of the other active ingredients, there is no information available that demonstrates that they are safe (or unsafe) during pregnancy.
 

Final Thoughts on Enzyte and Pregnancy

Enzyte should not be considered safe for use by pregnant women. Additionally, it is an herbal supplement (not an FDA-approved medication) that has never been shown to be safe (or effective) in any users, male or female.
