Pregnancy Exposure Registry

The Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) Office of Women's Health has updated its web listing of pregnancy exposure registries. Pregnancy exposure registries are prospective observational studies that collect information on women who take medication during pregnancy. These studies provide important information on the effects of drug exposure on fetal development.

The FDA pregnancy exposure registry page provides links to over 35 registries for specific medical products and medical conditions including HIV/AIDS, epilepsy, and cancer. All the drugs or vaccines used in a specific disease registry are also listed.

To access the list and learn more about pregnancy exposure registries, visit the FDA's Pregnancy Exposure Registries.
