    I'm sorry to hear about your loss. I have no experience with this in relation to phen. I just wanted to say please don't blame yourself. There are tons of reasons why there was a miscarriage. I hope you feel better soon.

    Default Thanks

    You guys are so thoughtful and understanding, thanks for all your kind words. I told myself that the phen wasn't the reason I miscarried, and it just wasn't meant to be. I love this forum, the support here is so wonderful.

    I am sorry for your loss hon((hugs)).I have had 2 myself. I personally don't think Phen was the reason.With my first m/c(no Phen with either one),it had been 11 yrs also since I had my last pregnancy.I was 19 and 22 when my first 2 kids were born.

    hi I am pregnant..and I was taking phen. I found out right at 4 weeks..i am very regular. Thank goodness I had stopped taking the phen about 3 weeks before I found out I was pregnant..so hopefully it was not able to affect the baby. I am now 11 weeks and have had a good pregnancy so far..just the usual yucky feeling

    I am very sorry for your loss. I don't think it had anything to do with the phen really either..but who knows? there are alot of girls on here who have said they have gotten prego while on phen.

    Surefirre...first I offer my condolences.

    Secondly, I researched it myself 2 years ago because I was taking phentermine when I got pregnant with my daughter and I didn't even know I was pregnant. Obviously after I found out I was pregnant I stopped. I researched it and found out this:

    An Overview of Phentermine and Pregnancy
    Phentermine is a prescription weight-loss aid. Since phentermine has not been studied in any pregnant animals or women, it is not known if it is safe for use during pregnancy.

    Phentermine and Pregnancy Category C
    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) uses a pregnancy category system to classify the possible risks to a fetus when a specific medicine is taken during pregnancy. Pregnancy Category C is given to medicines that have not been studied in pregnant humans but do appear to cause harm to the fetus in animal studies. Also, medicines that have not been studied in any pregnant women or animals are automatically given a pregnancy Category C rating.

    Phentermine has not been studied in any pregnant women or animals. There have been a few reports of lung problems and stillbirths possibly related to phentermine use during pregnancy. Also, phentermine is chemically related to amphetamines, a group of drugs that has been shown to increase the risk of birth defects and miscarriages.

    Since it is not known if phentermine is safe during pregnancy (and since taking phentermine is not absolutely necessary), phentermine is not recommended for pregnant women in general.

    Phentermine and Pregnancy: Final Thoughts
    If you are pregnant, it is always a good idea to ask your healthcare provider before taking any medication. Phentermine should probably not be taken during pregnancy. If you are concerned about your weight during pregnancy, please discuss this with your healthcare provider.


    So there is no clear "yes or no" answer but either way, please don't feel guilty because you didn't know you were pregnant and you weren't even taking it that long...so I honestly don't believe that the phentermine had anything to do with it at all.

    God bless

    First of all I want to give my condolances. I know it was devastating to me to miscarry. I'm sure you will have people tell you yes it did have something to do with and no it didn't. I was on Phen in 2005 when I got pregnant a third time (I had two prior regular healthy pregnancies) and I miscarried at 13 weeks. My OB said it "probably" had something to do with the miscarriage but didn't offer any documentation or anything. I thought that I was just sick from the Phen and didn't think anything of it but finally took a test and found out I was pregnant at around nine weeks. I stopped taking Phen the day I found out, but my doc still seemed to think it had something to do with it. I never did research it, I almost don't want to know that it was MY fault that I miscarried.

    Default Preggers and Phen
