Low Risk for breastfeeding


Moderately safe. Probably compatible.
Mild risk possible. Follow up recommended.

It is a GNRH analogue that works like an inhibitor of Hypophysis Gonadotropin (LH & FSH) secretion. A continue use produces a decrease of Estradiol level to those seen during the post-menopause period.

At latest update, no relevant published data concerning excretion into breast milk were found.

Its high molecular weight makes excretion into breast milk be unlikely. Also, a low oral bioavailability renders the absorption of this agent into the infant's plasma be nil or minimal.
