Hello, I'm also on Sertraline (or deerskin, haha!) I would strongly advise you to talk to your GP about weaning yourself off them properly. Don't just stop taking them.

Hi katie - loved the autocorrect, deerskin made me laugh smile.

I took sertraline throughout my pregnancy without any problems. At the time it was considered one of the more safer ADs to take (5 years ago).

If you really want to come off though speak to your GP. Everyone has differing experiences of weaning off and what worked for them. Doing it under your GP's guidance will allow them to tailor it to you and your reactions. Good luck on TTC.
