I'm 26, I was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy when I was 21. My ejection fraction is currently at 36%. My cardiologist said unless I can get it up to at least 50% he would not allow me to get pregnant. Does anyone know what I can do to get it up high enough or as anyone go through this. It is painful to be told at such a young age that you can't have children.....
I dont know the outcome of a pregnancy with cardiomyopathy... But I too have been diagnosed with cardiomyopathy after the birth of my 2nd son. It has been ten years... i am still on one med... and have been advised to not have anymore children.. That it was ultimately my decision. and the physician would support me but I would be looking at a possible reduced lifespan... I would love to have another one.. I would love to become pregnant without any complications. I have article that say you can do it with medical help.. and other article that are very strict and against it... I was young at diagnosis. 24 is a young age to be told.. "no more children" yes I am looking I have two and I am very thankful as they both were blessings but I just dont know what to do with the desire within me... Good Luck to you and let me know, if you can what you find out!!!
