What Does the Research Say About Breastfeeding and MoviPrep?
No research has been done to see if MoviPrep passes through breast milk. MoviPrep is not expected to be significantly absorbed into the bloodstream after normal use. Therefore, it would be unlikely to reach the breast milk. However, because MoviPrep has not been studied in women who are nursing or in breastfed infants, all potential problems cannot yet be ruled out.
If you require bowel cleansing prior to an intestinal procedure, your healthcare provider may recommend MoviPrep in the absence of safer options.
Talking With Your Healthcare Provider
You should discuss breastfeeding and MoviPrep with your healthcare provider. Each woman's situation is different, and you and your healthcare provider understand your situation best. After considering what you want and expect, as well as your current health situation, the two of you can make a shared decision that is right for you.
