Re: proactive and breastfeeding?

I know you can't while pregnant...but I'm not sure about breastfeeding.

According to the proactive website...you shouldn't take it while breastfeeding. But I would call your dr and figure out why they say not to and if he/she thinks it would be okay.

I used it while pregnant (i didn't know you weren't supposed to) and it didn't hurt me or my baby at all...

It is safe to use during pregnancy and while you are nursing.

I used Proactiv throughout my pregnancy and my OB verified that it was okay to use, as did a nurse and the lady that I buy my Proactiv from.

And yep, I'm in Phoenix!

It's safe for pregnancy and breastfeeding. I used it during PG and am still using it and nursing. It was also confirmed for me by my MW.
