I hope you don't mind me posting, but we're in a bit of a pickle and wondered if anybody has any advice.
My husband was diagnosed a year ago with RRMS, and takes daily Copaxone injections. We are hoping to start trying for a baby in the next six months, but have been given conflicting advice by MS nurses, and others.
One nurse told us that he would have to come off medication for at least three months before we attempt to conceive. This is obviously concerning for a number of reasons, including the fact that if it doesn't happen straight away then he could be off medication for an undetermined length of time, which is pretty scary. Also, we want to have more than one child eventually, so that prospect is pretty scary. It breaks my heart to think of what he'll have to cope with whilst we wait to conceive.
Another nurse told us that it doesn't matter as much of the father is on medication, as the guidelines are more geared towards the mother.
We want to be cautious, and will ask his consultant the finer details closer to the time, but in the meantime I wondered if anybody else has had a similar experience and could offer any advice?
Thanks in advance,
