I want to have a child
About This Community:

Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) (aka: Coronary Artery Disease (CAD); Atherosclerosis; is the leading cause of death worldwide. It is a disease in which a waxy substance called plaque (plak) builds up inside the coronary arteries. These arteries supply oxygen-rich blood to your heart muscle. Over time, CHD can weaken the heart muscle and lead to heart failure or irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmia). The purpose of the community is to share support and information with Coronary Heart Disease patients, their loved ones, and caregivers.

This is a question you really need to aim at your Doctor. It will all depend on the condition of your heart. If you have no damage, and your vessels are still adequately supplying blood to your heart muscle, then I can't see an issue because being pregnant is nothing to do with heart disease. However, all your current medications would also need to be reviews as many can affect a developing child.
