@schjo , the advice from the Tysabri Patient Information Leaflet is to consult with your Doctor “If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, think you may be pregnant or are planning to have a baby”

So seeking professional advice from your Neuro and IVF Consultant is recommended.

However, the following links should give you pause for thought:-

I’ve read that tsyabri can be given up to the point of conception, and maybe up to the 3rd trimester if indicated. It’s not recommended to breastfeed, however. It would be best to inform all health practitioners involved of what you’re planning/medications.

You might have to scroll down a bit on both to get to the pregnancy section. The BNF is what all UK healthcare professionals use for medicines.

Hello, I’m on Tysabri. If/when I become pregnant- I will be staying on Tysabri throughout and on through breastfeeding. Latest guidance is in this paper – which is UK consensus on pregnancy in MS https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30612100/
My consultant has supported many women through pregnancy on Tysabri, who have gone on to healthy babies and he is a lead contributor on the paper. Do send me a message if you want to talk about it. Best, Hannah
