Re: how does ms affect you by being pregnant

It's different for everyone just like the disease is different for everyone.

There are some who have exacerbations (relapses) during their pregnancy, some who don't. Some will have exacerbation post-partum and some won't.

I have 2 children both of them were born after my MS diagnosis. I stayed in remission before, during and after my pregnancies.

Re: how does ms affect you by being pregnant

I think it has something to do with our wonderful hormones and when you are pregnant the hormones are busy with your pregnancy and MS takes a back seat

I think that is how I remember it

I was fortunate enough not to have had a relapse. I was prepared not to breastfeed in case i got ill. The relapse never came until 3 years later. I say i was very lucky.
