Hi Adriana - Most definitely, there are blood pressure meds that are safe to take while trying to conceive. My fertility doctor referred me to a perinatologist while we were ttc. Fertility doctor made sure that I got in with the peri before they implanted the embryos. Once in with the perinatologist, he put me on blood pressure meds that I was on during preconception, pregnancy, while in labor, post-partum, and to this day (I have essential hypertension, which I was diagnosed with while ttc). Which meds? This is up to your doctor. Hopefully, you have a great one like I did, who'll really watch out for you and prescribe what's best for you and your baby.
Best of luck to you Adriana! [:)]
