morning I know it’s been a while but I think I maybe be pregnant with baby no3. I only realised yesterday that the contraceptive I’ve been taking is expired xx
Might be pregnant but worried cause I... - Action on Postpar...
Good morning Butterfly93,
I hope you know that you’re welcome to post anytime. I hope you’re ok. Sometimes an unexpected pregnancy can be a shock. The best thing to do is to take a pregnancy test if you can, and then pop along to the doctors too to speak with them and get support.
Don’t change your medication unless you’re getting advice to do so from a doctor or medical professional.
Write anytime if you need to.
Take care, and thinking of you.
Aww thank you Rachel ! I appreciate that I just spoke to my old psychiatrist and he mentioned to me that if I am pregnant. I can still remain on the medication I am on and it won’t affect the baby if I am pregnant 😆
Hello Butterfly 93,
Wow, well done for being proactive and getting in contact with them to talk things through. That’s great. And hopefully reassuring for you?
Thanks Rachel, just waiting on my pregnancy test to arrive later on lol prime delivery . I’ll let you know the outcomes later xx
morning Rachel it was negative 🤩
Morning Butterfly93, thank you for letting me know, sorry I’ve not replied before now. Hope you’re ok with the result of the test and that you’ve had a good week. Take care, Rachel x
Thankfully these are the two safest drugs for use during pregnancy. Lamotrigine has a fairly good safety profile.
I hope you're ok and know what you're dealing with soon! That's great you got that reassurance from your psychiatrist with regard to the medications you're on
