Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In the first half of the 20th century, some women with multiple sclerosis (MS) were advised by their neurologist not to become pregnant, or even to have a therapeutic abortion if they did.(1) However, now it is widely accepted that relapse rate is reduced during pregnancy, at least in the second and third trimester. Furthermore, there is no evidence that pregnancy is associated with negative long-term consequences and some studies have actually suggested beneficial effects.(2,3).
