Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
There are many types of psychiatric disorders. Therefore, the handling can also be a variety of ways.
Before answering your question, it needs to be clarified, what kind of mental disorder do you experience? And, what treatments are you taking to overcome these psychiatric disorders?
There are many types of antipsychotic drugs. Some of these drugs can affect fertility, but some others do not. The majority of anti-psychotic drugs can affect fertility, and ultimately also affect the potential for pregnancy, because it can increase the production of the hormone prolactin because it inhibits dopamine D2 receptors. This prolactin hormone, then can cause disruption in the balance of reproductive hormones, especially estrogen and FSH (follicle stimulating hormone). Impact, menstruation can become irregular, sexual desire will decrease, and the potential for pregnancy can also decrease.
Even so, the handling of psychiatric disorders is still an important function, so that your condition can be controlled and you can return to normal activities without significant obstacles. Therefore, you should not arbitrarily stop or replace medications that your doctor has prescribed without consulting a doctor first.
Turn yourself over to a doctor or psychiatrist, and express your intentions that are planning a pregnancy. Thus, doctors can certainly adjust the handling of psychiatric disorders that you suffer, so as not to interfere with your pregnancy program. If necessary, the doctor can also coordinate with an obstetrician in giving you the best treatment.
Hope this helps ...
