I'm looking for someone who can tell me about the possible risks of pregnancy in a woman with an aortic valve insufficiency. I was just diagnosed as having a mild to moderate aortic valve insufficiency, and was told it should not (yet) impede any normal activities. However, my husband and I were thinking about trying to conceive in the next year or two, and I'm concerned about how the valve problem could affect a pregnancy. Beyond the a.v.i. I am, as far as I know, healthy, and am only 25.
I would appreciate any information anyone could give me regarding my question.
