Can the men's 5% minoxidil hair care products be used by women safely, or are there risks?

The main reason the FDA has not approved the higher concentration of minoxidil for women is due to the possibility of birth defects or other reproductive harm.  This risk has not been identified for men, only women of childbearing age.
