Pregnenolone and Pregnancy

Although no research has been done on the safety of pregnenolone and pregnancy, it is probably a good idea for pregnant women to avoid this supplement. Pregnenolone is a hormone, and because pregnancy requires a delicate balance of hormones, it is thought that pregnenolone may not be safe for use during pregnancy.

An Overview of Pregnenolone and Pregnancy

Is Pregnenolone Safe for Pregnant Women?

Even though pregnenolone is a "natural" product, it does not automatically mean that it is safe for use during pregnancy. Pregnenolone is used by the body to make all steroid hormones (such as estrogens, progesterone, and testosterone). Pregnenolone itself is a hormone. Because pregnancy requires a delicate hormonal balance, it is thought that pregnenolone may not be safe for pregnant women.
 
There is no reliable scientific evidence that indicates pregnenolone is safe (or unsafe) in pregnant women.
