  • Pregnancy/Interstim

    I just found out that I am pregnant and very excited, but I do have a question. I have had the interstim device and have been using it for 3 years and it has been successful. I was told about 4 years ago by a Dr. that when you are pregnant the device is to be turned off. Is this true? I called Medtronic they advised me that they have not done testing, but have had patients with the device leave it on during pregnancy and been fine. What do I do? I would love to leave it on because it helps, but if I am harming the baby then no way. If you have any advice or experience, I would really appreciate it. Thanks so much.
