Can iloprost affect fertility, pregnancy or breastfeeding?

We don't know whether iloprost has any effect on fertility. Current guidelines state that iloprost will only be prescribed to pregnant women in special circumstances if their disease is severe.

If you're pregnant or planning to start a family you should tell your doctor before you start the treatment.

There is no research on use of this drug in breastfeeding so it's probably best avoided while on iloprost.
