In brief: No

Androgel is a prescription testosterone gel and should never be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding.
The theoretical and realistic risks of testosterone use during pregnancy is: the disruption of gender and sex development of a female fetus with overlying male hormone; and the excessive amounts of male hormone interfering with the development of a male fetus.
