Mental Illness and pregnancy?
I have severe mental illness and am on a cocktail of medications including seroquel, Effexor, avanza and lithium. I would have to come off a number of these medications if I wanted to become pregnant and would not be able to restart them until after I was no longer breastfeeding, which could mean a possible relapse, as well as any affects the hormones had on my mental health.
If you were in my shoes, would you still be willing to get pregnant and have a child? I'm just curious
