Re: prozac and pregnancy

Hi,

I agree with Dakota Skye, but just wanted to add - I am actively trying to conceive and was prescribed Zoloft. My GP said it is the anti-depressant women take when they do IVF... my endocrinologist (hormone specialist) said it is the one least likely to have any effect on any potential child. In fact, my endocrinologist told me I was more likely to get pregnant on Zoloft than without it (but I have fertility issues, and he was talking about my particular situation - it's by no means a fertility drug!).

Anyway, just wanted to let you know that, depending on the situation, some doctors are quite happy for - and would even insist on - you taking meds while trying to conceive.
