In brief: Pregnancy Class C

Ketoconazole is classified as a pregnancy class c medication.
This means that there are animal studies that show adverse fetal effect but no controlled human studies or that there are no animal or human studies. Must weigh fetal risk vs maternal benefit. Would discuss with your md before using.
