That's right Ondine. It is great to get these products without a prescription, but that means that one is taking the risk that would normally be taken by a physician. It is scary to think that an innocent woman would use these products only to find out later that they are dangerous to her unborn and nursing children. Such information is not provided to the buyer before they hit the "buy" button on a website; it requires folks to do their own research and to take this responsibility seriously.Funny you should ask that now. I was reading about Retin A & pregnant women (unsafe) & decided to check re HQ. I read on a product monograph for HQ 4% that it is contraindicated for breast feeding women. The same for Mono. Just tp be on the safe side, I'd wait until I was finished breast feeding before beginning any skin bleaching regimen at all.
