Customer Question

I have a female body builder I took a 12 week cycle of anavar orally. I think it was anavar. I took 5 mg and last 4 weeks i took 10mg daily. My last dose was July 06. And my last mentrual period was July 8 and my cycles can range anywhere from 31-45 days. Last one being 40 days. I found out I was pregnant on August 21 the doctor said I was 5 weeks 3 days pregnant. My question is would the anavar I took couple of weeks prior to my pregnancy have any affects on my baby?

I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.

The Anavar is completely eliminated from the body in around 3 days. So there is no residual drug in the body by the July 9. So your baby would not be affected by the medication, as conception has occurred far later. Please do not worry.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
