Re: Pregnancy and Vaso Vagals

From: KimG


I have only preliminarily been diagnosed with this disorder,but I am 32 and my hubby and I were planning on trying to get pregnant in the next year, so I asked about vaga-vagal episodes impact on pregnancy and delivery in the ER after I had what appeared to be a grand-mal seizure as well (that was later ruled out). They told me that yes, a safe pregnancy and delivery were indeed very possible, but that I would need to see a perinatologist that specializes in the care of high risk pregnancies and infants before, during, and after delivery. I need to see this type of specialist instead of my regular OB/GYN. I hope this advice helps you and that you have access to such a specialist where you live.

This web site is not a substitute for a thorough medical evaluation and diagnosis of your vaso-vagal type symptoms.  Medical treatment and diagnosis is the only acceptable initial response to these serious symptoms since they might present from any number of life threatening and treatable illnesses. It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
