Multiple sclerosis and pregnancy

Posted Jan 28 2011 12:00am
When I was initially diagnosed with MS, the doctor told me it probably will not get bad until after I have babies.
I read an article stating that doctors really believed that at that time. In fact, I had a cousin with the disease who had two children and her MS did get worse after having them. She died when her Kids were young because of the disease.
Today, it's reported that with therapies that are available, women have a much better chance of staying physically active and capable of caring for their children.
If a woman is taking a medication and thinking of becoming pregnant. She should discuss with her doctors before doing so. It's said that one should be off of the treatment for about six months before becoming pregnant and do not get back on their treatment until after the baby is born or after they're no longer breast feeding if they choose to breast feed the baby.
