    Hi all,

    I was diagnosed with PND in June and am on 225mg of venlafaxine. We are thinking of trying for another baby and I will be making an appointment to see my GP for advice, but was just wondering whether anyone has tried for a baby whilst on AD's and their experience.

    I don't have any experience of this but I do know that there are AD's that are safe to take whilst pregnant. Not sure about the one you're on though. Definately ask your gp about it.
    Good luck ttc! :)

    I was on an AD called paroxetine when I decided to ttc number 3. My doc changed me to Fluoxetine which she said was safe when TTC and for the first two trimesters of the pregnancy.

    I know people who've been on ad's throughout a whole pregnancy though. :hug:

    TTC with PND? Gosh you're brave. I'm struggling to see the end of each day let alone plan for a 9-month stretch!!!

    Best of luck hun :hug:

    As someone else said I think Fluoxetine is OK in pregnancy though obviously it's best to come off them if you're well enough. Fluoxetine is also a generally good AD I think. I liked it. Until I got Rash of Doom :doh:
