    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    I just found out about 3 weeks ago that I am pregnant. My husband has been taking avonex for multiple sclerosis and I was wondering if the medicine could travel through the sperm and be harmful to the fetus?

    Hi MomOf3 and Congratulations!

    I hope you have talked with your pharmacist or your husband's doctor to find out about the med.

    This link may be helpful - Avonex and our members or experts in our Multiple Sclerosis Community may be able to share their experience.

    To meet and connect with other moms-to-be in your same trimester check out our Pregnancy: First Trimester Community.

    Best wishes,
    Elizabeth
