Trying to get pregnant
How does lupus affect women trying to get pregnant?
Lupus patients generally have a harder time becoming pregnant and, in particular, have a higher risk of miscarriages. Depending on your type of lupus you or your baby may develop certain problems during pregnancy and hence you should talk to your physician before deciding to become pregnant.
