Significant teratogenic and/or embryocidal effects have been demonstrated in all animal species exposed to Ribavirin. In addition, Ribavirin has a multiple dose half-life of 12 days, and it may persist in non-plasma compartments for as long as 6 months. Therefore, Ribavirin, including Ribavirin tablets, is contraindicated in women who are pregnant and in the male partners of women who are pregnant. Extreme care must be taken to avoid pregnancy during therapy and for 6 months after completion of therapy in both female patients and in female partners of male patients who are taking Ribavirin therapy. At least two reliable forms of effective contraception must be utilized during treatment and during the 6 ­month post treatment follow-up period

“At least two reliable forms of effective contraception must be utilized during treatment and during the 6 month post treatment follow-up period”

Because of the High Risk of Severe Birth Defects, I was instructed to use a Condom even though I had a Vasectomy almost 25 Years before Treatment. I find it hard to believe this “father” was not warned of this prior to starting Tx.

Yup my doctor was extremely insistent about this as well and said the same thing even though I'd had my tubes tied 20 years before (and didn't have a BF while on treatment either!!!!!!!!!)

he had to have been told it's too critical not to have been at some point before treatment started.

Bill1954 - welcome back.  Glad you posted that

It happens - pregnancy.  If it does you/ your dad/ the mom absolutely needs to register with the ribavirin registry.  This is where you are going to get the best information available.

We all know you are not supposed to get pregnant.  I am sorry if it happened and hope for the best.
