Does Suboxone affect fertility?

Table of Contents

Buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) does not affect fertility or your ability to become pregnant if you are a female or to make someone else pregnant if you are a male. However, there is some evidence that once pregnant, the “naloxone” component of Suboxone has some potential harms for the development of a baby in-utero. Accordingly, some pregnant women are switched from Suboxone (which contains Buprenorphine that is safe in pregnancy and naloxone) to Subutex (which contains ONLY buprenorphine but no naloxone). If you become pregnant or are trying to become pregnant while on Suboxone, you should speak to your doctor.
