It is very serious, yet, I never heard of it until baby number four? Thankfully, my doc took my concerns very seriously, tested me that day, and started me on Urso just in case since the results take so long to come back. Of course, I stopped the meds once I tested negative. My bile acids were very low, so we didn't retest. My doc just wanted to be pro-active. I am normally against unneeded meds, but I was happy to be pro-active when there was the chance of losing my baby.
I wish more people and doctors knew about it. It needs more awareness.
