I recently went to the Rhematologist and was diagnosed with Sjorgens and Rhematoid. He told me that I needed to have a permanent form of birth control because Sjorgens is 100% passed on to the baby. I had a hysterectomy so that was not an issue for me but what about these younger girls who are child bearing years are they being told this as well. I think that this is a significant thing for people to be aware of. There could be children walking around for years with this before it surfaces and then if they have children it goes on and on. This is a serious issue. You should all talk to your Rheumatologist about this and get their imput if you are still able to have children. Just because one Doctor says it does not make it so but he must have gotten the information some where so it warrants closer investigation.
