I am new to the board. My partner and i have been ttc this past year, but i was recently diagnosed with atrial fibrillation. I was hoping to find others that have atrial fibrillation, ideally prior to getting pregnant, but also afib that started during pregnancy. We have put ttc on hold while i get the afib under control and figure out the best path forward. I git it most every night so it is something that needs to be addressed.
I would love to hear others experiences with this while ttc and pregnant. I am specifically interested to hear if others took flecainide while pregnant. Flecainide is looking like it might be the most effective drug to treat my type of afib. However, the implications for the fetus seem pretty serious (scarier then some of the other class c drugs) (it scares just me being on it!). Is anyone out there taking flec regularly? And if so, which trimesters? I also may have the option of getting an ablation to fix it. I was wondering if anyone has had an ablation and how long they had to wait after the procedure to ttc again? I am at an age where i don't really want to put it off much longer.
thx for any input! I am pretty bummed to have suddenly had this. Note my heart is structurally fine (just an electrical problem!) and i am very healthy otherwise.
