Amber Portwood Sheds Light On Bipolar Disorder

In the latest episode of Teen Mom OG Amber Portwood revealed she is still struggling with bipolar disorder and sheds light on the dangers of having children while on the medication.

Rather than pushing to have another child, Portwood has decided to make a smart and selfless decision not to.

“I just got re-diagnosed for Borderline Personality and Bipolar Disorder, and I’ve been taking three medications now that I need to take for the rest of my life,” Portwood said when Gary Shirley asked her why she can’t have another child.

“I can’t, I can’t get pregnant on this medication. I can get pregnant, but it would mess up the fetus. If I do not have medication, I will not be normal. I would have … crazy mood swings.”

Portwood has decided to put her health first and keep another innocent life out of danger. It also took a lot of bravery for her to admit that she is going through her third diagnosis which is pretty shocking.

So, there are no kids in the future for Portwood which means only Shirley would be able to help Leah out with a sibling.
