Thank you for posting your query.

Intravenous immunoglobulins (IVIG) therapy is safe in pregnancy. In several clinical studies, excellent outcomes of pregnancy have been noted in pregnant women treated with IVIG.

The safety of IVIG is also maintained during pregnancy.

So, you can safely continue to use IVIG during pregnancy for your CIDP.

Wishing you good health,
