I have seen people receiving IVIG and they have been fine. How long you use it for will depend on your system ... if your immune system is down, your doctor may decide to give it to you frequently. I THINK you can get it once every week.

Only your Immunologist can answer that question for you - it is dependent on the severity of your immunodeficiency. ivig comes with risks as it is blood product but generally it's benefits far outweigh the negatives - I have been having ivig infusions for 5 years every 28 days and I very rarely get sick any more.
