I didn't take meds until after I had my first child. I had needed it before but never sought help. There was a med that was causing side effects I didn't like and started going off it myself. I let my Pdoc know when I went in next so we could try something else.
When I got pregnant the second time I was advised to stop cold. I went back on one med at 11 weeks.
This time I worked with my Pdoc to go off meds to get pregnant. It took 2 months to go off Fluxoetine and 3 to go off Lamictal. It took 7 months to get a pregnancy that would "stick." I'm supposed to go back to check in now that I'm pregnant, but I'm feeling normal pregnant stuff so I haven't been back. I will go eventually though.
