I 'mysteriously' got pregnant within a few months of ending treatment for lyme. I was TERRIFIED. I had made the decision because of the lyme that I was not going to have children...funny how that happens.
I had my son tested at birth for lyme (via PCR). Came back negative. He is 3.5 years old, happy and healthy and the joy of my life. Literally, I'm fairly certain he saved my life. After the whole lyme thing, I just didn't have Joy even though I was no longer sick.
Take all necessary precautions-I do know some people that have had kids born with lyme.
Do you know how accurate the test is used to test your son? I will not have children if they will be born with lyme.
