Double check this with your doctor but I believe that you as the woman are the one who should not use it if pregnant and that your partner is not in the same situation. The fear is that it can harm the fetus but he fetus would be in YOUR body. The packaging states that it can cause fetal harm if administered to pregnant women. So, that would mean if YOU use it. So, would think you are safe for trying to conceive. If you feel more comfortable, just make a quick phone call to your ob/gyn and ask them the question. I'm fairly certain you will get the green light to go ahead. Hope your partner's skin cancer is better!
