Has any one conceived while their husband was taking anitdepressants? My partner is on lexapro and I was wondering if this could have any ill effects on our chances of conceiving or cause any abnormalities in the baby if we are successful.

I recently suffered a miscarriage and am freaked out about trying again and worried we did something wrong the first time.

When I had DS, my DH was on like 90 mg of Prozac and I was pregnant within 5 months of us meeting. And we have a very happy and healthy 17 month of little boy now. I also got pregnant while taking Celexa.
Thank you to Brie_91 for my perfect new siggy!!!

I am very sorry for your loss I got pregnant while I was taking Welbutrin. I stopped after I got my bfp but my doctor said if I get depressed while pregnant that we need to get back on the meds.

I'm pretty sure you should be okay, as i know a few friends that have had to take anti depressants through their pregnancy. But if you are nervous about it, ask the doctor. They should be able to put your mind at ease!
