My son's girlfriend is 19 and has developed FMS. How will this affect her getting pregnant in the future?


Bonnie - May 25

As far as I know it doesn't affect getting pregnant, but it makes being pregnant 10 times worse. It will also be hard for her to raise the kid. My mother has been diagnosed with fibro and later polyfibromyalgia reumatica. She found that pregnancy is what brought on severe symptoms. I am at risk also, so it's not a good idea for me to have kids.

I actually was symptom free for my entire pregnancy, actually with both of mine, i had a pretty bad flare up after delivery, but managed, with help from my husband, FMS is such a hard thing to deal with, but i certainly would discourage someone from having children because of of luck.

I didn't develop fibro symptoms until after my son was born. I've heard that most women go into remission during pregnancy.

Right now I am 20 yrs. old and I am pregnant with FM. During the first half of my pregnancy my symptoms and flare ups were practically gone. However I am now in my last month and I have got the same flare ups back. Also I was just recently diagnosed with pre-eclampsia and put on strict bed rest for the last few wks. I have read that FM may have some tie to this but unfortunately very little is known about both of these diseases. But even though I have gone through this to me it is worth it in the end, so I wouldnt discourage anyone with fm from having children.

I didnt know my preeclampsia could have been related to the Fibro after reading some of the post tonight I am wondering.
