Pregnancy and Dysport

Dysport is not recommended for pregnant women. Dysport is a drug that is injected into different areas to decrease wrinkles, and in some cases, it is used to help relieve neck pain. Dysport helps to relax the muscles in the affected area by decreasing nerve signals.

Reasons to Not Receive Dysport while Pregnant

If you are pregnant or thinking of becoming pregnant, you should know that Dysport has not been tested on pregnant women. If you are considering using Dysport for cosmetic reasons, it is recommended that you wait until after the baby is born to reduce the risk of complications. Studies show that there were increased risks of miscarriages and stillbirths when Dysport was given to pregnant animals.

The side effects of Dysport can include cold symptoms, nausea, headaches, fatigue, muscle weakness and more. Some of these side effects are also signs of pregnancy. Since this drug has not been tested on humans, no one knows if the side effects can be worse in pregnant women.

If you are pregnant and are considering Dysport for medical reasons, talk to your doctor. He can help you determine if it is a safe treatment during your pregnancy, or help you find an alternative treatment.
