Trying for a Baby

Hi,
I’m a man with MS and we are thinking of trying for a second child. I’m currently taking Avonex and was wondering what the advice is when on Avonex? I feel the Avonex is working (no relapse) I’ve been on it for 3 years so far, so worried that if I have to come off it this will make my MS worse. Just wanted to know if any others had experienced this?

thanks

@swilkinsuk , I’d bounce this question at your MS Nurse, to obtain proper medical advice.

I did find this website, which posed the question and seems to have got some medical answers :-

The only effects I am aware of are animal studies showing Avonex might cause more miscarriages when women are taking this. As a man this should not affect your donation to the cause 🙂

Good Luck!
