Is natural pregnancy or assisted reproduction pregnancy better in MS patients?

By Dra. Rut Gómez de Segura (gynecologist).
Last Update: 12/15/2021

Multiple sclerosis does not cause infertility or prevent pregnancy naturally. Therefore, we would advise resorting to assisted reproduction treatment after 6 months to a year of natural attempts. In the case of fertility treatment, it would be advisable to study the patient's immunology and all the parameters of ovarian reserve and general health of the couple.

Also, we would have to work together with the patient's physician to make sure that pregnancy and childbearing do not pose any risk to the patient and the future baby.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease of the central nervous system. It is an autoimmune disease, which means that the patient's own immune system attacks the body.
