Brief Answer: No. There is no risk of birth defect compared to N Detailed Answer: Hello, I have gone through your query and understand your concern. Oxandrolone have the half life of about 8 to 13 hours and Clearance time of about 3 to 4 weeks. As you have conceived after 3 months of stopping Oxandrolone, nothing to be concerned about any risk of birth defect of your baby compared to normal pregnancy. Have a regular check up with your Obstetrician. Drink plenty of water. Avoid any sexual activity during the first trimester. Do not lift heavy weight and Travel anywhere unnecessarily. Hope this helps. Please write back for further queries. Wishing you good health.
