I would not recommend using minoxidil if you are pregnant. Please consult with your OB-GYN.  At only one month of use, it is too early to see much improvement. Had you used it longer then the  benefit obtained would be lost within a few months. Hope this helps.

You can stop minoxidil after using one month without any problems. It takes many months to see the benefit so at this stage, you barely started.
