I was diagnosed with MS 7 years ago and have so far been a lot better on DMD’s. Started on Rebif (with just 1 relapse in 5 years) and now been on Tecfidera for 1.5yrs and so far no relapses (touch wood).
I’m currently 34 so want to start a family (before its too late) but as I’ve been so well I’m scared to death of coming off Tecfidera and really want to start trying while still on it (against my nurses advice). I worry if I come off and it takes a long time to get pregnant that I’ll relapse.
As it’s a new drug has anyone else fallen pregnant on it and is the baby okay? I’m also worried that as I feel so well could having a baby change the course of my MS to make me wish I’d not bothered?
Any help and advise would be much appreciated
