In brief: Yes
It simply puts you into a higher risk pregnancy that you can work with your ob/gyn to manage with appropriate planning.

In brief: Yes but complicated
Myasthenia gravis is an autoimmune disease that affects the muscles.
It doesn't affect fertility but can complicate pregnancy. Complications include worsening of m.G., breathing problems, pre-eclampsia, m.G. In infant, prematurity and increased risk of birth defects. You shouldn't get pregnant within the first 2 years after your diagnosis. Before getting pregnant, you should discuss with your md.
