MS During Pregnancy
If you have multiple sclerosis, you’re probably wondering if you can have a healthy pregnancy. We've got all the details.
What’s the best way to treat MS during pregnancy?
None of the major MS drugs are approved for use in pregnancy, so you’ll have to work with your doctor to find the regimen that’s right for you. Luckily, some women with MS notice that their symptoms let up during pregnancy. But beware: It’s not uncommon to have a relapse in the first few months after your baby is born.
What can I do to prevent MS?
You can’t. But if you have it, you can work with your doctor to manage the symptoms.
What do other pregnant moms do when they have MS?
“In order to try and get pregnant, I had to go off of my MS treatment and all other medications I was on. I went through horrible withdrawal for a good two months after going off my medication. And just when I started to feel better, we got pregnant.”
