Here is My Question:
Which DMT is best for me and safe for my fetus if I am going for IVF treatment?
This is a difficult question to answer because of the many steps involved with in vitro fertilization. Generally, you do not want exposure of the egg after fertilization. Since each disease therapy is associated with definite pharmacological duration (Multiple the half life of the drug by 5 to be safe), it is relatively easy to determine the potential duration of exposure after last dose. Your neurologist should be able to help with his decision. If they are not familiar with the detailed pharmacokinetic or pregnancy recommendations for any DMT, they can always consult with a medical science liason from the drug company or ask for consultation from an MS specialist.
Hope this helps.
