I am almost 30 and newly married so of course the thoughts of starting a family are in the back of my mind. A lot of people say that they developed GERD during pregnancy, but my question is for those people who have already had GERD and then became pregnant. DId things get worse? I am still working my way out of a flare up and I notice that when I have my period, the symptoms seem worse for me....this of course scares me because I am thinking it will be horrific when I am pregnant. Obviously I am not ready for children now, but in the near future it is something I am planning. I just am terrified I am going to be in even more pain or that it will make my LES worse than it is now. I do not want to let GERD rule my life, but I also do not want to suffer for months. I may consider surgery (if I am a candidate) to ensure that I can start a family because it is very important to me. If anyone has any insights or advice, please let me know.
