Although I am not sure about being pregnant yet or not, I wanted to get this question out as soon as possible in case I am. If pregnant, it would be under the unplanned kind. I'm on birth-control but missed a pill a while back this month (which was taken in the late morning when I awoke). Now I have a late period, only by almost two days but being late on the pill is extremely unusual for me, and the missed pill causes wonder on top of that. Very possible I'm not but would like to take precautions IF I am.
Anyway, to get to my question - I am under the impression given internet sites that birth-control during pregnancy will not harm an unborn fetus. However, I have been on Seroquel for the last 6 months or so for the treatment of my Aspergers (which has been very helpful). So what I am wondering is (and I want to get this question out as soon as possible for the just in case factor) - Can Seroquel harm a very undeveloped fetus? I am not sure of when conception could have happened (if it indeed did occur), because I unfortunately do not chart when I ovulate, or even know when or if ovulation happens at the same time while on the birth control pill, other than for obvious reasons, I know conception(?) happened this month.
So, does anyone have any information about Seroquel and very early pregnancy? I do know it is a C on the pregnancy safety scale for drugs. However, nobody has ever done experiments on people, though in mice I believe it showed more chance of issues around pregnancy. I will be seeing a doctor, unfortunately, things are far too complicated with me and everyone else involved to see a doctor right NOW. After a test, IF positive, I will of course be making an appointment to the nearest office. Until that time, I want to make sure *if* I am indeed pregnant, that the baby inside me is safe and healthy. Does anyone on here know? I am aware there is risk of being on the drug for the entire pregnancy, but unaware of the effects of just 1-8 weeks (depending on when conceived and how long it takes to get off the pills if pregnant). I'm currently on 150 MG if that means anything.
You should call your prescribing Dr right away if you think you are pregnant. They will be able to advise you on what to do to keep you and your baby safe and healthy over the phone. However do NOT stop taking your meds cold turkey without seeing a Dr first.
