Kybella while trying to get pregnant
Although it isn't likely that Kybella would affect a developing pregnancy, its not worth it to chance this given that you'd like to have the healthiest baby possible.
So for now, I'd suggest holding off until after delivery and after nursing before considering Kybella.
In terms of how long it stays in a persons system, its hard to say. The treatments still show activity up to one month after a kybella injection.
I'd say if you weren't pregnant and decided to try kybella before trying to get pregnant again you'd be safe to wait 2 months after a treatment before trying again. But do know that it often takes 2-4 treatments so get an optimal result with kybella. Hope this helps.
Patients who are pregnant, trying to conceive or are breastfeeding are not good candidates for Kybella. It is not ideal to perform clinical trials on these individuals. Please avoid Kybella treatments during this period to avoid any detrimental effects on the fetus/baby's health. After giving birth and completing breastfeeding, please see your healthcare provider to assess if you are a good candidate for kybella!
Kybella and Pregnancy
Kybella is FDA approved and is safe and highly effective at reducing submental fat. However, there are no studies on pregnancy and I would avoid such injections during that time. Best, Dr. Green

Use of kybella in pregnancy
Kybella during fertility treatments or pregnancy
The safety of Kybella administered to a woman who is pregnant has not been studies and therefore Kybella should not be administered to a pregnant woman.
We often give Tylenol and ibuprofen immediately prior to a treatment, and one dose of prednisone immediately after along with ibuprofen for several days and arnica as part of my specific protocol which is very effective in minimizing swelling. Some of these substances are not recommended in pregnancy and could affect your fertility treatments.
So it's best to wait, don't you think?
All the best,
