Anti - depressant vs pregnancy. safe or not???
Hi doc.

Thanks for all your GREAT advice , I usually try and visit your site often.
My concern is the following.

I have been on Yasmin for 5 months and would like to leave the pill and fall pregnant. When is the right time during my cycle.
I am also on an antidepressant (3 months) called Hexal 100. How safe is it to use while pregnant ??The other anti depressants dont work for me and my doctor prescribed it.

Thanks

Stop the Yasmin at the end of a packet. I am not familair with Hexal 100. Please find out its chemical name and I may be able to advise.
