Can pregnancy and MS go together?





















Dr. Mariko Kita from Virginia Mason Neuroscience Institute gives us a brief overview of Multiple Sclerosis (MS), and the general worries that come with it, that include pregnancy.

She explains that pregnancy and MS can go together, and can actually benefit the patient. Pregnancy produces a unique immunological state that naturally helps to control strong autoimmune responses for obvious reasons.  MS is controlled during pregnancy about as well as it is with any FDA approved disease modifying therapy.

MS is expected to get worse after the pregnancy, making the patient feel forced to choose between starting their therapies back up, or dealing with the pain and nursing. Fortunately, we have learned that nursing can potentially reduces the risk of MS activity during this period.
