I have depression, anxiety, and OCD. I read that St John's Wort helps with all of those so I bought a bottle to try and it seems to be helping. Well, now I've been reading not to take it while you are pregnant, but there is no tests that show it has any ill effects. My next appointment isn't till next week and I'm wondering if I should stop taking it or continue until then. She has me on xanax but I have read that can cause birth defects and I would much rather take this. Ever since I have started this(only 2 days ago) I haven't needed my xanax. Should I stop taking until next week or if anyone knows anything about this if you could help me out cause I am pretty desperate.
