      Does anyone know the risks of getting pregnant when one has CIDP? Does pregnancy/labor/birth increase the risk of a relapse?

      Has anyone taken either prednisone (low doses), Imuran, or IVIG during pregnancy? From what I can find on the internet, the drugs may or may not be safe. Is anyone taking these during pregnancy?

      If you give me a day or two, I will find the number of a girl that was at the symposium and has had cidp since before age 10. She has one child and was pregnant at the symposium. Her mom was a laison, she still may be.
