Has anyone ever had the SSA/RO Antibody go back to normal (aka not positive) at anytime or during pregnancy? Does this lessen the risk of fetal heartblock/neonatal lupus and need to be monitored?
Last year I was diagnosed with Sjorgren's Syndrome.....lots of weird symptoms, positive ANA, high titer, etc. Rheum tested me for SSA & SSB (amongst other things) and I came back SSA positive (RO antibody). He explained what this meant as far as pregnancy and that I'd have to be monitored. I know it's low risk (2%) and my maternal fetal said he just considers me "elevated risk" and that I'd get a lot of ultrasounds.
Fast forward to one month ago...labs drawn and SSA is apparently normal but my ANA titer is still positive and higher than it was last year. Rheum still says I need to be monitored by maternal fetal since I've had positive SSA previously.
Just curious what others experiences have been/are?
