Many women with lupus do well during pregnancy. However, before a woman with lupus becomes pregnant, she should discuss family planning with her doctor. It's best to be in remission for at least six months prior to getting pregnant. Doing this can increase the chances of a healthy outcome for mother and child. Many women with lupus see a special "high-risk obstetrician" specializing in complicated pregnancies. There are some risks, however, including premature birth and fast-developing high blood pressure (pre-eclampsia), so careful monitoring is key.

Attendee Takeaways:
  • Lupus and Family Planning – The Essentials
  • Lupus and Pregnancy – What to Expect

  • Lupus & Fertility
