Hi Everyone,

My partner and I have been trying to get pregnant for the last 2 years with 2 early miscarriages.

I just tested positive for band 23 & 41 with 2 co-infections (Ehrlichia and Bartonella).

We are holding off trying to get pregnant until I finish treatment.

It was recommended to me by my LLMD that once we start trying again, I should go on antibiotics the entire pregnancy and while breastfeeding.

I wanted to see if this was other people's experience (post-tx of Lyme then getting pregnant) and also if you did go on antibiotics (the whole pregnancy?) and if so, is your child healthy (no Lyme, and also no developmental delays?)

I'm worried about whether the antibiotic use during the pregnancy will have any effects on the baby (gut-biome issues, food sensitivities, etc).

Clearly not giving Lyme to a baby is #1.

Thanks!

Hi there!! Welcome to Lymenet!!

I know nothing about pregnancy and Lyme except what I have learned here.

We have lots of links with information. I went to the little word "search" up above on this page. It's right under "create a poll."

I found these:

Welcome to Lymenet linds18

Lymenet network is the longest operating internet-based Lyme Disease resource, serving the Lyme community since 1993. You will find this vast wealth of knowledge no where else on the planet. Hope we can help you on your very important life issue.

Thanks to our tireless Lyme advocate, Tincup, she has compiled a "Modes of Transmission";

Pregnant Women and Neonatal Lyme Treatments from top LLMD's state;
Atleast 2 antibiotics are required to treat mother appropriately for congenital Lyme.

Babesia med, Mepron, is safe during pregnancy.

Bartonella meds are not safe during pregnancy therefore treat Bartonella prior to becoming pregnant.

Treat for all co-Infections as ticks are sewers of infections.

Any borrelia at-risk fetus should be tested at birth, including cord blood, placenta, and also use dark field microscopy.

There have been clinical cases where gestation LB was not treated with antibiotics and both mother and baby did well.
