I am 37, and just found out I am pregnant with an unplanned blessing. Currently on Lemtrada, had 3 rounds, last one was Nov 2017. Prior to starting Lemtrada I was on Tysabri and went off to have a baby. I had a horrible post-partum relapse at which point my neurologist told me to be done having kids (I have 2). Which leads us to today...I’m about 6 weeks pregnant and I called my neurologist to get his advice and he essentially told me to terminate this pregnancy. Have any of you had success protecting you patients from relapses post pregnancy? This resource is amazing...thank you!
Based on what is provided here I have no idea why termination is being suggested. If the last infusion was over a year ago the drug is long gone from the system. I would make sure to seek a second opinion.
