    Question Relactating,dom and pregnancy?

    I not sure where to post this.


    As you all know i have been relactating for my daughter and we are not on any type of birth control really(trying the withdraw method but it dosent always work) I am on dom 40mg 3x a day. I called my pharmacy and asked about potential pregnancy while on the meds they said that it was a class C, no studies have been done during pregnancy. She said to call my OB. Well he is not in town so the NP said not to even take the med period. And they said that they do not even reccomend nursing when your pregnant.
    We are not "trying" to but since it is a possibality i wanted to know ahead of time.
    I know people nurse/pump while they are pregnant, but what about the dom?

    I e-mailed Dr Newman because i couldnt find an answer anywhere that was deffinate and since he is well known for his breastfeeding knowledge i thought to ask him.
    This is what he said for future inquring.

    Dear Ms. Kristina,



    There is no known problem taking domperidone during pregnancy. But this doesn’t mean there is no problem. We just don’t know. However, domperidone would decrease your risk of getting pregnant. But if you get pregnant, it won’t help your relactation because domperidone doesn’t work during pregnancy.
