What should I be doing to support?

Hi everyone, my boyfriend has MS and was diagnosed 3 years ago aged 24. We were just friends at the time and I supported him wherever I could in helping him dealing with his diagnosis. He had a procedure which improved his symptoms. lemtrada I think it was called and apologies if that’s poor spelling. We are now together and I’m just wondering if anyone could offer any advice on the best way to support him as his girlfriend. He suffers from fatigue and I’m always asking how he feels and making sure he’s not feeling too exhausted if we have plans and he knows how understanding I am. Also I’ve been told by a friend that we will not be able to have children in the future because of the MS if we ever decided we wanted to. Does anyone know Why? Thankyou very much. Sophie

To the best of my knowledge there’s absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t have children unless your boyfriend has problems other than MS. There are many people on this forum who have had children with MS. One of them may well reply to you.
