Women with MS


This series of video interviews looks at questions frequently asked by women with MS. Multiple sclerosis is more commonly diagnosed in females than males and can have a range of impacts on women, particularly relating to treatment choices during pregnancy.

These videos discuss whether MS affects fertility, how the condition behaves during pregnancy and how women with MS can make lifestyle changes to manage their symptoms. These questions about women with MS were submitted by members of Shift.ms, the social network for people with multiple sclerosis, and answered by experts including MSers, a Neurologist and a Professor of Neurology. The series was sponsored by Merck.
