Has anyone taken Bromocriptine during pregnancy?

I have been on Bromocriptine for a couple years now to treat a medical condition and I worry that if I get pregnant it could harm my baby. I have had a previous miscarriage and the doctors said it is not from the drug, but every website I go to says not to take it during preganany. It only has a B risk factor which means there is no proven cases of fetal abnormalities but I would feel better if i knew someone has taken it and had a healthy baby!!

Update:

I was told to take it during my last pregnancy and it ended up in a miscarriage at 8 weeks. None of them seemed concerned about the drug, so I am so confused!!

    Well i read the following:

    It is safe for patients with prolactinomas to achieve pregnancy following bromocriptine treatment. Pregnancy may lead to a slight decrease in the size of prolactinomas, increase in size, no change, and in some cases, complete resolution. There were no visual field changes during the pregnancies. Pregnancy and long-term bromocriptine treatment may be helpful in reduction of the size of the tumor.

    Bromocriptine is indicated for the treatment of disorders associated with hyperprolactinemia, including amenorrhea (lack of menstruation), with or without galactorrhea (a secretion of milk from the breast that is not associated with breastfeeding), infertility or hypogonadism. It has also been combined with clomiphene as a fertility treatment for women who do not have an excess of prolactin, including women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).

    The data suggest that the intake of bromocriptine during pregnancy is not associated with an increased risk to the fetus.

    Bromocriptine And Pregnancy

    Infertility can be caused by a huge number of factors: hormone imbalance, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, Endometriosis, Anovulatory Cycles, physical blockage, inadequate hormone production, short luteal phase, lack of lutenizing hormone, high levels or prolactin, and many others.

    Poor nutrition often plays a major role, as does exposure to toxins. Age plays less of a role before menopause than was originally thought. While there are many wonderful naturally minded fertility specialists out there, in many cases it is not possible for them to test for and address any of these possible underlying issues.

    Now everyone can cure infertility using this natural remedy http://pregnancyhelps.info

    infertility can run in the family and one of the first things the doctor asks you when you go to a fertility clinic is your family history regarding cases of infertility or other reproductive issues.

    If infertility is caused by genetic disorder then it's not unusual that one of the kids (your mom) doesn't have it and another does (your aunt).

    two months of trying is still to early to be concerned about the fact that you might be infertile and it's also quite early to go to a fertility specialist. Go to a regular Obgyb to get a closer insight and see what ways there are are to improve your fertility rate.

    Also remove alcohol, caffeine and cigarettes from your life because they might influence your chances too. Stress is also a risk factor when it comes to infertility.

    You're right, it's not supposed to be taken while pregnant (at least that's what my doctor told me). Is your doctor aware that you are trying to become pregnant? He should know this so he can closely monitor you and have you off of it if you get a positive pregnancy result.
