Would Fosamax Affect Pregnancy?
Hi, I an 33 years old, phemenopausal woman, and diagnosed with Osteoporosis 3 years back. I have used Fosamax for one yeart to date as part of my treatment which has not improved by condition by large. Now I whist to get pregnant due to my advancing age. For how long after stopping Fosamax can I get safely pregnant?
There are no data on how long one should wait before getting pregnant after taking Fosamax. Fosamax may be present in the body for several years.
