“Selena Gomez’s Future Family Plans Affected by Bipolar Medication, Says Source”

Gomez scared bipolar disorder will not let her be a mother

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone for their latest cover story, Selena Gomez shared her desire to become a mother someday. The singer, who is currently 30 years old, explained that this could potentially be a difficult task due to the two medications she is taking for her bipolar disorder, which may prevent her from carrying her own children. She recalled crying in her car after visiting a friend who was trying to get pregnant and thinking about this fact. Despite this challenge, Gomez remains hopeful and is open to other means of becoming a mother in the future. She expressed that she will have children in whatever way she is meant to.

As per an article reviewed by doctors on WebMD, medications used for treating bipolar disorder can have adverse effects on a newborn’s health like neural tube defects, heart defects, and developmental delay or neurobehavioral issues. However, some doctors suggest continuing with these medications during childbirth as a woman’s symptoms can worsen while pregnant. During an interview, Gomez opened up about experiencing psychosis in 2018, which resulted in paranoia and difficulty trusting people around her. She underwent several months of treatment during this time, and her friends had a hard time recognizing her. Her mother found out about the situation from TMZ.

According to Gomez, psychosis can be a prolonged experience with an unpredictable duration. She recounts her journey of gradually recovering from psychosis before being diagnosed with bipolar disorder and being put on various medications in search of the right treatment. Although she eventually improved, the medications made her feel out of it until a different psychiatrist helped wean her off most of them. Gomez explained that this process required a lot of effort on her part, including relearning how to remember certain words and recalling where she was during conversations. Despite the challenges, she had to come to terms with her bipolar diagnosis and learn how to manage it as it was not a condition that could simply vanish.
