On Thursday we went to Deb’s first fertility appointment to hopefully start on baby #2. Dr. M ordered the tests we had figured he would for Deb, HSG, blood work on specific days etc. One thing we hadn’t thought of was the medication Deb is on for her arthritis/plantar fasciitis. She is on only one medication, we had looked into all the medication I had been taking, some were a little worse for wear, but taking outweighed the risks. The medication Deb is on is a class C/D drug. The later in pregnancy the worse changes of birth defects. This drug also has been shown to inhibit ovulation. There isn’t really a substitution for this drug unfortunately.
So she has stopped taking the medication, and we will see how it goes. So far it isn’t going too well, but we did have a busy walking weekend. The full effects of the drug should be worn off after a week of not taking them. We’ll see how it goes.
