CIS and having children?

Hello, I’m new, and I’ve been looking for answers for a few years about having children. I hope someone can help me either way. And I'm sorry for all the text, I have a lot on my mind.

A bit about me:
I’ve been CIS for about 3 years, on Betaseron, and my neurologist said I was at an extremely high risk of having another event within the first year, based on my MRI scans. ...

What's going to happen to me?

Diagnosed in March - but posted in the un-diagnosed section of this site in 2016 while going through the diagnostic process.

What's going to happen now? and I'm just going to be frank here.. this is what want to ask.. when are things typically going to get really "bad"? I need to have just a general idea because I want to make a plan for myself (if you know what I mean).

Have your MRI scans been consistent with your symptom level?

I am scheduled to have a MRI in the next few weeks and have not had one since I was diagnosed over 4 years ago. I have been feeling pretty good overall and am obviously hoping for good results but I am also aware that you can be symptom free and have plaques showing in your MRI and that you can have a clean MRI and symptoms. Just wondering what others here have experienced.

Closer to a blood test for MS

Neurofilament light chains (sNfL) are pieces of neurons that appear when they get broken. It seems that they appear in blood when MS attacks.

It is not specific to MS, but at least it serves to monitor the damage. It is much more realistic than the previous walking tests and EDDS scores that we had before.

Sleep direction

If you have MS sleep East-West on a steel sprung mattress. This will draw magnetosomes to the central part of the body where they can be chelated easily by drinking water.
