Diabetes and pregnancy

Dear Dr. Amy,

My boyfriend and I have been trying to get pregnant for the last 6 months and no luck. I have diabetes and I'm taking insuling twice a day. Can that have something to do with getting pregnant?


Dear Isabell,

Diabetes can have a big impact on getting pregnant and having a healthy baby. You should talk to your diabetes doctor BEFORE you even try to get pregnant. It is very, very important that your diabetes be under tight control before getting pregnant or you may have difficulty conceiving, an increased chance of miscarriage and an increased chance of birth defects.
