Patient discussion about course

Q. Thanks in advance for your help!!!I of course I need to work closely with my doctor, and i want to share here. Hi to all, I am 25, female with bipolar and wants to have a baby. I have so many doubts in me; the main question is does intake of bipolar meds safe during pregnancy? Is it possible to have a healthy baby being a bipolar? Thanks in advance for your help!!!I of course I need to work closely with my doctor, and I wanted to share here first.

A. I dealt with pregnancy without meds as I had only depression. But your case is different. You being a bipolar should continue meds to get cure for that disorder. I shall suggest you to get treatment for this disorder and later try for pregnancy. I am sure the medicines will have side effect on the baby and I read years ago that some of the medications used to treat mood disorders can actually dissolve the baby. Secondly, there are other ways to go around this. You can have different therapy. That will surely help you. Finally it is better to consult your family physician before trying to become pregnant. I shall strongly suggest you to get rid of this disorder and try pregnancy later as you are still young and can wait for 2 more years?
