I was wondering if anyone who was treated for lyme, has gone on to have a child? And if they had any complications? Thanks Smile

buried; up for others who HAVE/ARE going thru this.

yes, many have had children! i've read their stories; just a brief note here until they reply to you.

don't give up hope; if you get NO replies in 24 hrs; bring it up yourself; it gets buried with so many ACTIVE members.

hugs/prayers

romo,

just remembered 1 other thing and not to put a damper on this, but MANY lyme patients end up having multiple miscarriages.

there have beenstudies done on this; sorry, but wantedto be honest with you.

idon't remember if it's in UNDER OUR SKIN lymedocumentary, a news report, or a homemade video, but i do remember 1 lady having 6 miscarriages before she was able to deliver a healthy baby. Kissing Kissing
