Hey everyone...I just found this website today. I used to be very active on an MSN support group for HS and am wondering if any of you here were members there too (it no longer exists). I am terrified reading about how many of you have children with HS. I guess in the back of my mind I always figured there was a possibility that HS was hereditary and that any children I had *could* potentially have HS but now that I am actually about to bring a child into this world I am scared. I don't want my child to have to suffer through what I have suffered with for the last 16 years. I am reading stories here about teens not going to school and teens being bed ridden for days and I don't want that to be my son. I don't know what I would do! The guilt would be overwhelming. Does anyone have any idea what the likelihood is of having a child inherit your HS? Obviously not enough studies have been done about this disease but I just wonder if anyones Dr's have mentioned what they have seen in their experience.
