In brief: Category B

Emtricitabine-tenofovir has been assigned to pregnancy category b by the fda.
Animal studies have failed to reveal evidence of embryofetal toxicity or teratogenicity. There are no controlled data in human pregnancy. However, emtricitabine-tenofovir has been evaluated in a limited number of women during pregnancy and postpartum.
