Many women need to take medicine while they are pregnant. Some women take medicines for health problems, like diabetes or high blood pressure, that can start or get worse when a woman is pregnant. Some women use medicine before they find out they are pregnant.

A pregnancy exposure registry is a study that collects health information from women who take prescription medicines or vaccines when they are pregnant. Information is also collected on the newborn baby. This information is compared with women who have not taken medicine during pregnancy.

Enrolling in a pregnancy exposure registry can help improve safety information for medicines used during pregnancy and can be used to update drug labeling. Learn more about how you can help.
