Any information on melatonin use in women contemplating pregnancy?

Dr H -
It is not recommended as melatonin suppresses release of GnRH.
Here is a study considering using melatonin as a form of birth control.
Patients trying to get pregnant should not be on melatonin.
For patients who are infertile, morning full spectrum light is used to suppress melatonin production and increase GnRH production.
