I was recently diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis and have been advised to go on Cimzia.  My husband and I were looking at doing a second around of IVF with ICSI in a couple months and have some concerns being on the medication while going through IVF.  Is there any research or information available about the effects of biological drugs while doing fertility treatments?

 

Thanks.

Hi SadieG,

If you would like the best and most up to date information on safety of medications when trying to conceive and in pregnancy and breastfeeding, I strongly suggest that you contact Motherisk.

http://www.motherisk.org/

They are a fantastic resource and would best be able to answer your questions

Best of luck
