Hey there. Just wanted some of your ideas/opinions on this topic. I'm close to starting Rebif. I took Copaxone for a year and a half but there were no indications that it was working for me so my MD took me off it and we decided on Rebif (good choice)
I'm only 30 and it is quite possible that I may one day want to have another child (I have a 9 year old).
I've already researched that pts with ms do really well during the pregnancy but postpartum they can have an increase in difficulty. I also am aware that I cannot take Rebif and be pregnant under any circumstance.
If I choose to have a baby, I, of course, will discontinue taking the drug for some time before I become pregnant.
I guess my BIG question is: What happens if I get pregnant while I am taking Rebif? It would most certainly NOT be on purpose. I am currently on an oral contraceptive and my husband and I are not readily planning to have any children at this time. However, it's not uncommon to get pregnant on birth control. 99% accuracy if taken exactly the same time each subsequent day and never miss a pill. But there is always the 1%.
I think I'm rambling. Any thoughts out there??
Oh by the way, Rebif has come out with this new program in case anyone is interested in taking it but has dismissed it because of the copay or no prescription coverage. It's really awesome. If you want more info, let me know.
