There is no report of a case where a baby would be born with anomalies linked to the contamination of a woman by a partner taking Propecia. However, the Merck company, to be careful, recommends men taking Propecia to use a condom. While most of the doctors consider there is no risk, the most careful ones, as far as they are concerned, recommend to stop taking Propecia during the partner’s reproductive period.
