    Default Allergy injections and TTC/pregnancy.

    Hi ladies.

    I have been having injections to get my allergies under control for the past year and was told by the specialist it is recommended not to be pregnant during the first 20 weeks of treatment, but he made no mention of after that period. There is also no light at the end of the tunnel with when the treatments will be finished either. I was wondering if anyone here had experience with this and TTC/pregnancy. It doesn't help I am over the injections and the office is really hard to get hold of. I don't see him again till the new year.

    I've been having allergy injections for about 18 months now, for dust mites and mould. I talked to my specialist when I started TTC (at which point I'd been getting injections for about 10 months) and he said there was no evidence to suggest it would be an issue. He did mention that his advice was based on the amount of time I'd been having the injections already, and that he wouldn't recommend commencing treatment when TTC. As for how long is long enough - I don't know, sorry!

    I'm now down to once a month injections, to be reviewed at the start of next year. So while it's still a pain and still costly to get done, it's far less of a pain that it was when I started.

    Can you ask the specialist's receptionist for a phone consult? When I explained my concerns to my specialist's rooms, they organised for a quick (free) phone call to assuage any fears.

    Default Allergy injections and TTC/pregnancy.

    I have been trying to get in touch with my specialists office to talk to them about it the phone is engaged or the office is closed because he has travelled to his out of town clinics..

    He said when I started that treatment could go for between 1 - 3 years, I am being treated for dust, mould, grasses and pollens. Though in the last few months I haven't had much of a change in allergy reactions, aside from the last week, but that's just the time of year and I know people that don't have bad allergies that have half ever this time of year.
