The most serious side effect that occurs with finasteride
use is serious birth defects that can occur in pregnant women. Specifically, finasteride results in defects in the sex organs of male fetuses. Because of the severity of this side effect, finasteride is not recommended for pregnant women or those who could become pregnant in the future. The risk of this side effect is so great that premenopausal women are advised to not handle or come into contact with broken tablets of finasteride because it is not known for how long the medication stays in the body.
