Multiple sclerosis , Pregnancy and Multiple sclerosis disease

Women with multiple sclerosis can consider a pregnancy. Multiple sclerosis affects up to 1 in a 1000 of the population in the United Kingdom and tends to first present between the ages of 20 and 40 years. Their fertility is not usually affected. Alternatively, it can be a chronic progressive disorder and women with multiple sclerosis who are considering pregnancy need to be aware that certain drugs used to treat multiple sclerosis should be avoided during pregnancy and while breast feeding.

The cause of multiple sclerosis is unknown. In this condition the insulating material round nerve fibres (like the insulating material round electrical wires) is damaged so upsetting the function of the nerves such as those controlling the bladder.

Also, while multiple sclerosis is not in itself a reason to avoid pregnancy and poses no significant risks to the fetus, physical limitations can make child care more difficult. It tends to be a relapsing and remitting condition with damage to the nerves occurring in different parts of the brain and nervous system at different times.
