If your prolactin is high and if that is determined to be the cause of not ovulating and not having regular periods.... then you need to see an endocrinologist (preferably a reproductive endocrinologist) to correct and evaluate the elevated prolactin. The result, if this is truly the cause, will help regular the periods.View Thread
If you still have normal urinary, erectile, and ejaculatory ability it probably did not affect your ability to have kids. If any of those are a problem, you can certainly visit a urologist and express your concerns.View Thread
Chlamydia infections can, in some people, cause infection and scarring in the fallopian tubes. If you have not had the test to see if your tubes are open, now may be a good time to get that done. It is an x-ray called an HSG (hysterosalpingogram). Talk to your provider about it.View Thread
It is always tough on ONE assessment to make the call if a pregnancy is viable or not. If the "DOT" that they called the baby measured greater than 6 weeks, there should be fetal cardiac motion. It is never wrong to ask your provider for another look in a week or so. It is amazing how much a normal pregnancy grows early on in one week and you will know with certainty if it is normal or not.
It certainly won't hurt! The reason you read about it with IVF is that is where it has been studied the most. It seems to help IVF success rates a bit. The theory is that is may be relaxing and decrease stress.
If you like it and it makes you feel good, by all means do it. Ultimately, if you don't get pregnant with the meds you are taking, IVF may be the next step necessary.
Honestly, that is not the easiest question to answer. You should really make an appointment with your OB doctor before conceiving and get his/her opinion. In general most antidepressants are safe in pregnancy and have very low (but serious) risks in certain situations. Each doctor will have differing opinions, so I would seek the services of the doctor(s) who you plan on seeing during the pregnancy.View Thread
