Weight-Loss Medications and Pregnancy #

A growing number of women are turning to weight-loss medications to improve their chances of a healthy pregnancy or conception. These drugs are sometimes recommended for women with obesity who want to get pregnant, as excess weight can hinder fertility and increase the risk of complications. However, the lack of information on the risks of these medications during pregnancy is concerning. Doctors generally advise women to stop taking these drugs at least two months before attempting to conceive due to the limited data available.
