  • I wouldn't think so unless they were made of some bad metal and then it would make you sick first. Congrats on your preg.

  • The braces themselves won't affect anything, but if you use any kind of medication during treatments it could. Make sure your ortho knows you're pregnant, just to be safe!

    And please don't let posters like Anonymous here get to you, apparently some people have nothing better to do than to make others feel bad. You're going to see that on here a LOT. :(

  • Katie is right. The braces them selves wont hurt the baby. but if you take meds or something, then I would talk to the doctor first to make sure its safe.

  • sweet heart...remember you're 16(not trying to talk shit that You are) but im gonna guess that the other girls who are telling you this are somewhat around your age and dont know their heads from their asses when it comes to pregnancy. but if it really still concerns you, ask your dr.
