The diagnosis of multiple sclerosis increasingly occurs at an early stage. Receiving this diagnosis with an unpredictable disease course frequently affects life choices including family planning. In an era of expanding treatment options with highly potent and potential teratogenic drugs, there is a compelling need to increase patient awareness and provide appropriate information about planning parenthood.
