Re: I'm Pregnant and on Lupron Depot
If you have an ectopic pregnancy, then you can't keep the baby, and you need surgery very soon.
If it's not ectopic, then you can try to continue the pregnancy, although it sounds like your doctor is pushing for termination. You might have increased risk of birth defects, there is a high chance of miscarriage, but you might have a normal child.
There was a study of 6 babies who had been inadvertently exposed to Lupron before birth. One had cleft palate, and four eventually showed neurological problems (epilepsy, motor difficulties, or speech difficulties). One was normal.
I don't know what you should do. I don't know what I would do if it were me in that situation. You may want to seek out the advice of your religious leader, if you have one you trust, a parent, a close friend, or even a genetic counselor.
If you knew you'd have a healthy child what would you do? And if you knew for a fact that the child had been harmed by the drug, what then? Again, I don't know the answer, I'm just trying to help you form the question.
