I'm thinking of asking my doctor about anti-anxiety medications if I ever have another pregnancy, but I'm worried about side effects. I've never had anxiety issues outside of pregnancy, but after multiple losses, including two MMC after a heartbeat, I'm worried about my ability to cope. I'm also worried that if I start taking one now, mid cycle, it will make things worse for a few weeks before it starts helping.
I'm curious what others have done. I'd appreciate hearing your thoughts about balancing the risks versus benefits.
Thanks in advance.
