Not many people know about the effect of fibromyalgia during pregnancy. In fact, there seems to be contradictory facts between researchers and doctors as to the results of pregnancy on the syndrome. It is generally considered that more fibromyalgia research must be carried out in order to get an accurate concept of what happens to fibromyalgia disorder during pregnancy.

In 1997, a study on fibromyalgia and pregnancy was conducted in Norway. A very few number of pregnant women were involved in this research, some with fibromyalgia and some without.

The study found that a vast number of those pregnant women while suffering from fibromyalgia reported a radical boost in the sternness of their symptoms. The third trimester was by far the most difficult during their pregnancy phase, with symptoms increasing frequently. Most of the women in the study said that their symptoms stay on more severe than normal until about three months after they had delivered. They also had a more frequency of post-partum depression.

On a positive note, the babies born to fibromyalgia-affected women were all healthy, with normal weight and without any deformities.

Many health physicians however, oppose the concept that pregnancy makes fibromyalgia worse. Doctors who treat fibromyalgic patients actually disagree that pregnancy helps to reduce and even eradicate the symptoms caused by fibromyalgia. According to the reports many pregnant women felt better after their initial vomiting and morning sickness. It is hypothesized that this could be due to the ovarian hormone relaxin. During pregnancy, the quantity of relaxin in a woman’s body raise up to 10 times. It has also been established that relaxin supplements help to relieve symptoms in many women with fibromyalgia.

Unless patients have acute complications, most women feel that pregnancy can be pursuable with fibromyalgia. Women with fibromyalgia should keep these things in their mind:

- Women should try to plan her pregnancy at least a year ahead of time, so that the lost strength can be build-up.

- Women should reduce the stress of their life as much as possible.

- They should conceive when the symptoms are comparatively less severe. Conceiving should be avoided during a higher symptom.

Regular consultation with doctors are highly recommended.
