Cephalexin is classified pregnancy category B. Animal data suggest that cephalexin does not impair fertility or cause harm to the fetus. Cephalexin does cross the placenta and distributes to fetal tissues. However, there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. Because limited data are available, cephalexin should be used during pregnancy only if clearly needed.
