Hi,

Lupride injection contains leuprolide that is used in the treatment of prostate cancer, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, central precocious puberty etc. It is contraindicated in pregnant women or women who may get pregnant. If Lupride injection is used during pregnancy or if someone gets pregnant while using this medication, should beware of the potential harmful effect to the upcoming baby.

It may cause birth defects, spontaneous abortion or loss of the baby when administered to a pregnant woman. If someone gets pregnant while using Lupride injection, then she should inform her prescribing doctor immediately.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Zubayer Alam, General And Family Physician
