Zoloft Birth Defects: Hypospadias

Posted on July 6th, 2011 No Comments

The antidepressant drug Zoloft has been associated with a number of birth defects, including hypospadias.
Hypospadias is a congenital defect of the penis, where the urethra does not extend from the bladder to the tip of the penis. The urethra does not develop fully and may end prematurely, placing the urethra opening on the underside of the penis.
Hypospadias is the third most common birth defect, after heart defects and clubfoot. Approximately one out of every 300 male babies will be born with hypospadias each year.
The defect in itself does not cause major urinary problems, but it should be surgically repaired for both functional and cosmetic reasons. If left unrepaired, hypospadias may also casue a curvature of the penis, known as chordee, which, if severe enough, can make sexual intercourse painful or even impossible.
If your child was born with a birth defect, such as hypospadias, after you used the prescription antidepressant Zoloft while pregnant, please contact the Zoloft Birth Defect Lawsuit Lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 1-800-641-9810.
