Multiple sclerosis (MS) predominantly affects women of childbearing age; thus, the issues of conception and pregnancy have become of significant importance to physicians and patients. Clinicians must be prepared to counsel patients and discuss the risks, as well as the benefits, of treatment during pregnancy. This activity will review the effects of MS on pregnancy, as well as the management of MS during the prepregnancy, pregnancy, and postpartum periods.
