Hi , i have a quick question ...i've being suffering from a hard lypo over 6 years , changed meds more then once but nothing happened, Now , me and my boyfriend thinking of having a child. My big concern is that my skiny legs will not stand in the "load" of the pregnancy, is there any chance that due to the changes in the hormons i will start getting some weight on my legs? Your quick reply would be much appreciated.

Response from Dr. Moyle

You legs won't be a problem. I have never heard of skinny legs breaking with the weight of pregnancy. Sadly, it is unlikely that pregnancy will lead to weight gain in you legs. You need to discuss with your doctor about pregnancy and you medication so that you baby is protected against HIV and not harmed by medications regards Graeme Moyle

Abacavir vs Tenofovir
Alternate causes of lypodystrophy?
