I'm only 23 years old and single, but my current boyfriend really wants to get engaged. Part of my issue is that I have Lyme disease. He really wants children and I'm afraid of passing it on to my babies.

Since I'm not yet married, I want to research the topic now, before I ruin a marriage if I choose not to bear children.

Advice? Is there any proven way to have a child without Lyme (other than adopting)?

Thanks!

It is possible to have healthy babys. Antibiotics are taken during the pregnancy, I think the typical one given is amoxicillin.

Chlorella is taken to clean up the breast milk as I have heard transmission is 4 times likely in breastfeeding.

Yes it is possible. Many on this site will warn you otherwise.

Many of the best LLMD's say as long as you are on 2 abx during the ENTIRE pregancy and breastfeeding time, then transmission is not likely.

Usual drugs are omnicef with Zithro. Or Bicillin/Amoxicillin with Zithro.

I just had a baby on April 5th. So far so good and he has no signs of infection. I took 2 abx (omnicef and zith) along with some other things throughout the pregnancy.

I also have a 12 year old who has lyme which we suspect he got from me. I will say that there was signs early on. I just didn't know at the time it was lyme.

When faced with pain you have two choices....either quit and accept the circumstances, OR make the decision to fight with all the resources you have at your disposal.
