Re: Is it ok to have a child?
I know this is hard for you at the moment, but the only person to answer such a question is definitely a doctor. Make an appointment with your general doctor and ask to be referred to a rheumagologist for the lupus part of the question. Then ask for a referral to a hematologist for your sickle trait part of it.
I know it is a lot to go through, but armed with the correct information, you can then go ahead and make the plans you want to in regard to having a family.
Best of luck and good wishes.
I am not a medical doctor, I only speak from my own experience of the illnesses I discuss here.
