  • No, I believe the packaging specifically says not to use if pregnant or nursing.

  • As a dental hygienist, I would advise you have your teeth cleaned professionally while pregnant. I would also advise to have your teeth cleaned professionally before bleaching to remove surface stains.
    In answer to your question, I would not bleach while pregnant. There has not been enough studies on pregnant women - I suggest to wait - better safe than sorry.

  • A lot of the bleaching agents contain peroxide and that can cause vomiting-- morning sickness is bad enough for some people!
