Yes: Recent studies do not show MS as a risk for increased fetal loss or abnormalities. Generally, the disease quiets down during pregnancy. Pregnancy per se does not worsening the natural course of ms, and may in part be protective. Talk to your neurologist about a planned pregnancy and need to discontinue MS disease modifying drugs (and possible other medications) well ahead of trying to conceive.

Yes: Yes, it just might mean a high risk pregnancy so make sure to work very closely with your ob/gyn.
