Hi, my husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for years now. I have extreme ptsd after my daughter died in a car accident when she was 2 with her father who was on drugs (i didnt know this at the time obviously or he wouldn't have had any custody. Anyway, I'm 27 and my doc has me on xanaxb/c of the severe panic attacks i've had since this happened. I am desperate to have a child, as well as my husband. I feel like a failure. I've tried getting off the xanax but always end up hospitilized because i breaok down. Is it true that xanax affects fertility?What can I do? also I was bulimic for 13 years but have been in recovery for a year. My weight is 140 and im 5"6. I am very careful with my eating plan. Please help me, i'm desperate.

Thanks for your query.

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply:
1) Alprazolam does not affect in conception. Rather stress affects. Hence I advice you not to worry about past much and focus on future.

2) you are young have good chance of conception.

3) Please get your self evaluated and your husband's semen analysis done which will help you in detecting problems now

I hope I answered your query. I will be available for any follow up query you have.
