If you have epilepsy becoming pregnant may be a challenge. However, it is not something that is impossible. Instead, it is something that you may need to carefully plan due to the differences in your hormones. In addition to this, it is possible that the stress from your pregnancy will increase your chances of having a seizure.
The most important thing that you can do when you are looking to become pregnant and have epilepsy is to make sure that you are being treated properly. Having good control over your seizures is one of the best ways to ensure that you will be able to become pregnant and have a healthy pregnancy.
You should also review the medications that you are taking with your doctor. Some of them may make it harder for you to conceive or may be dangerous for you when you are pregnant. They could also cause birth defects in your baby if you continue to take them throughout your pregnancy.
Because of this, you should consider switching to pregnancy safe medications long before you are ready to conceive. This will allow you to have time to adjust to the new prescriptions and allow the old prescriptions time to leave your system.
