This question would be best answered by a cardiologist with expertise in adults with congenital heart disease.
Many women with ta have had successful pregnancies. It depends on how well your heart is functioning, what medications you are taking, the presence of abnormal heart rhythms, and the presence of other health problems. Your age is also a factor. Discuss with your cardiologist.
