Symptoms: May be pregnant

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query,If one is already on so many drugs and antipsychotics , it is advised that she should n ot contemplate pregnancy as these meds are known to cause congenital defects in the foetus. It is important that she confirms pregnancy first and discuss the procedure for termination of pregnancy, as it is not safe to be on such medications and plan a pregnancy.regards
