My DH and I want to start TTC this year however I am on a lot of anti-epileptics. 2 of which are quiet new on the market and not much research has been done in regards to what impacts these particular drugs have on fetus'.
I am really unsure what to do. The epilepsy has been hard to control which after 8 years I am finally stable enough to start thinking about having a baby and if I stop my medications there is a high chance I could relapse, start having seizures again and that would be horrible if it were to happen while I was pregnant. On the other hand the thought of taking medications that could too put a baby at risk frightens me.
I have a great Neurologist who is very supportive but will not advise me on what to do, only provide me with all the answers to my questions and concerns, understandably so, because ultimately it is our choice either way.
My DH and I are very frightened about making this decision. Is there anyone out there who has been in a similar circumstance?
