my stomach is bigger than normal and I thought that the lithium could be a side effect. I also have gained weight in the last 2 days and also am late on having my cycle.
I don't think I understand your question.
I have a friend that became pregnant whilst on lithium, if that helps. She was advised to abort due to the effects of lithium on the baby.
Hi, kim! It's biologically impossible to get pregnant from taking lithium. Lithium can cause weight gain, constipation, and bloating so if this doesn't resolve in just a matter of days, or if you don't get your period, you should probably make a doctor appointment for a complete physical.
