Probably yes: The consensus is that nobody knows. Fortunately, it is a Class B teratogen risk, so studies of its use during pregnancy did not result in any untoward effects on developing fetus.http://www.mayoclinic.org/drugs-supplements/phenazopyridine-oral-route/before-using/drg-20065473 The drug's half-life is 7.3 hours, so it will be entirely gone from your body by about 40 hours from your last dose. ...Read more
