I have a dilated LV due to chemotherapy/radiation 10 yrs ago. I have never been symptomatic and my current EF is 49%. My cardiologist obviously is able to tell me the risks of pregnancy but not the likelihood of them happening. I am currently on carvedilol and amlodipine to lower BP and try to increase my EF. I am wondering what other people's experiences have been if similar to this. Also I would like the doctor's opinion on this. My cardiologist won't provide an answer one way or the other. I would have to use donor eggs and go through IVF to get pregnant and would like to do this sooner rather than later. I am from Rochester, NY so if anyone knows of a good/experienced cardiologist in the area please let me know!! Thank you in advance!
