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
