Want to conceive, overweight. Taking Melodene pills, antidepressant medication. Is intake of pills, weight a concern?

Hi I want to fall pregnant, I have been on the pill (melodene) for a few years now. I am overweight and I am on antidepressants (wellbruton). Not sure what or how I must start this. I am 32 years old and we have decided to start trying to conceive. I will be going onto a new antidepressant in about 3 weeks, one that I can conceive on and its apparently safe for pregnancy. I am not sure if I should loose weight first, it will take months to loose weight and I don t want to wait that long. I am confused and don t know what to do, should I loose weight or maybe stop the pill so long, coz it takes a few months for your body to adjust to your cycle again. Is it safe to go off the pill now when i am overweight and still on medication . advice would be appriciated thank you Liza

you can start loosing weight from now onwards, as after stopping pill it will take sometime for regularization of cycle and for returning of ovulation by that time you may loose some amount of weight which will help in fertility,
as over weight can cause problems like anovulation and menstrual irregularities better to decrease weight and maintain BMI in between 19 to 24.
take care.
