Do you have a doctor who is knowledable specifically about CFS or FM?? A specialist?? If you can find one (they are few in number) I think you should be discussing this with them.
I have read A LOT about CFS (had it for 2 years) and visit another message board fequently about CFS and several people have asked about CFS and pregnancy.
From what I have read, many times CFS and FM actually go into remission when a woman is pregnant. It is thought to be a hormonal thing.
I have read that CFS either gets better or stays the same with pregnancy. That said...it isnt uncommon to have a relapse after you give birth.
I dont think you should give up the dream of having kids if it is something you really want!! You could be sick forever or get bettter....it is a gamble. You should be realistic though. If you are very debilitated to the point where you cant care for yourself, then caring for kids will be hard....you will need help if your husband/parterner works and you will be a stay at home mom....do you work now??
Have you considered freezing your eggs? I know that is very expensive but I just thought I'd ask.
Dont give up this dream, but be realistic-kids and everything in life are a gamble anyways, but some things are worth it. Don't let anyone tell you to give up you dream of having kids-NO ONE can make that decision for you!!
