Spironolactone and Pregnancy - Help!!

Postby Skoopaloop » Thu Jul 07, 2016 6:07 pm

Hi Ladies - I'm freaking out!

My husband and I kind of gave up on TTC for awhile because it just wasn't happening, and then surprise, I just found out I'm reaching the end of my 4th week of pregnancy!!! While I am absolutely thrilled, I'm terrified because I was taking Spironolactone 50 mg until my 3rd week. Does anyone know anything about how this might affect my pregnancy? I plan on asking my doctor next week at my appointment but I'm devastated inside right now at the thought of having to maybe terminate a pregnancy because of this. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I took 200mg Spironolactone a day till about the third week of pregnancy. I stopped taking it when I realised I was pregnant and told my specialist but from memory they weren't too worried. Mention it to your doctor but try not to worry. I have a happy 5 year old who wasnt affected by it at all!
Best wishes for your pregnancy X
