PODCAST EPISODE 1 | Preconception planning for women with MS    

Women are nearly 3 times more likely to develop MS than men. Because the majority of these women are diagnosed during their childbearing years, clinicians and patients are encouraged to incorporate family-planning discussions into their ongoing MS management conversations. Optimal patient care involves coordination among a woman’s neurologist, obstetrician/gynecologist, and primary care provider to ensure alignment on the woman’s individual family-planning choices and preferences.

This episode will feature 3 unique perspectives on preconception planning for women with MS: Dr. Lori Travis, a neurologist who specializes in treating patients with MS; Dr. Erkan Buyuk, a reproductive endocrinologist, and Ms. Shannon Green, a pregnant woman living with MS.
