Can ciclosporin affect fertility, pregnancy or breastfeeding?

Current guidelines state that ciclosprin can be taken when you're pregnant. If you're planning a family or if you become pregnant while taking ciclosporin you should discuss this with your doctor.

The drug may pass into breast milk but is barely detectable in babies, so is unlikely to be harmful. You will need to discuss with your doctor whether to take this drug while breastfeeding.
