English Abstract

Background: The multiple sclerosis (MS) disease is more common in women than men with a ratio of 2.7 to 1. According to Iran MS society, there are about 80,000 MS patients in the country Iran.

Methods: This is a descriptive– analytical study that has been done on 150 pregnant women which selected randomly and referred to health centers of Ardabil city at 2017. Data collected by a questionnaire included questions about MS. The collected data were analyzed by statistical methods in SPSS version 19. Results: Of all women, 20% considered gender as one of the most effective factors in the disease and 44.7% believed that women are more likely to suffer from MS than men. The knowledge of pregnant women about MS with 63.3% was in moderate level and friends and relatives was the most source of their awareness. 43.3% of women believed that knowledge people with MS could marry. 63.3% of women pointed that the health care centers knowledge about MS was inadequate and 68.7% pointed that government's support for patients was significantly low.
