You have to go on a really strict diet before you get pregnant if you have pku. Ur protein is very restricted and u must eat a lot of prescription foods like free pasta bread etc and take ur formula (more than usual) calories also have to be counted and u wud need to visit hospital that deals with ur pku regularly and send in bloods twice a week or more.
Suppose best thing to do is get in touch with ur hospital or clinic and start from there.
