I'm not sure there is a real clear cut answer to the question...I read around a bit on a few sites and found this:

Using HGH during pregnancy and nursing:
Studies on HGH and its effects on animal reproduction have not been carried out. It has not been seen that HGH can harm the fetus during pregnancy, nor that it can affect reproduction. Nevertheless, HGH should only be taken during pregnancy if absolutely necessary. Studies of the effects of HGH on nursing mothers have not been carried out and hence it is not known whether this product is excreted into mother’s milk. However, since many pharmaceutical products are indeed passed into mother’s milk, nursing mothers are advised to take HGH with extreme caution.

but it doesn't seem like there is much out there in terms of documented research.

What I would say to you is from the heart and from someone who is close in age to you, works in a hospital and have gone through my own biological clock issues over the last year or two. If having a baby is a priority for you, I would focus on that before I considered any additional cycles into the system. Pregnancy becomes more high risk the older you get and you could use it and nothing might happen at all but if something did, you would have to carry that with you. I would seriously weigh out what risk levels you are willing to take before doing it, with the "just in case" in mind.

It's an extremely personal decision, between you and your hubby but one I'd take some time to ponder. Just my thoughts though. All the best to you.

Hi Anon,

Thank you for your question! While doing some research for you, I found nothing that states that HGH will affect the ability to conceive. As a matter of fact, very few side effects, such as headaches have been noted for adults on HGH. Remember that HGH is a hormone naturally produced by the pituitary gland and is needed for growth. As long as your HGH levels are monitored by a doctor, then you should remain in good health and no change in your reproductive system should occur due to the Growth Hormone.

All the best,
