VigRX and Pregnancy

If a pregnant woman takes VigRX, pregnancy problems could occur. The herbal supplement is not intended for use by women in general. Some of the product's active ingredients that can cause problems during pregnancy (such as birth defects) include ginseng, horny goat weed, and saw palmetto.

An Overview of VigRX and Pregnancy

VigRX™ (an herbal supplement used for "male enhancement") is not intended for use by women (pregnant or not). Several of the active ingredients in VigRX may not be safe for pregnant women.
 

Is VigRX Safe During Pregnancy?

The following active ingredients in VigRX may possibly cause problems during pregnancy:
 
  • Epimedium sagittatum extract (horny goat weed) -- may have testosterone-like activity, which could harm a developing fetus
  • Ginkgo biloba -- 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)
  • 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

VigRX 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.
