As far as we know, yes. No human studies have linked microwave use to any problems during pregnancy.
Still, because researchers continue to study how microwave radiation affects people, it’s a good idea to take two simple precautions when using a microwave:
- Don't operate the microwave if the door doesn't close firmly, is bent or damaged, or if the seal around the door is damaged.
- Don't lean against the microwave while it's operating.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends that everyone, whether pregnant or not, take these precautions. Doing so can help you avoid accidental exposure to the type of radiation produced by microwaves.
