Re: Getting Pregnant

Hi, there. It depends. I was told that the recommedation is that your SLE be under control for a certain length of time (maybe one year? please check this) before the doctors feel they can recommend that you try to get pregnant. Under control means that your lab results for blood and urine have consistently indicated that your SLE is under control or inactive for that whole span of time. I would say that your physical symptoms would also have to be under control, but I have heard that for some people, their lab results seem good, but they don’t feel well, and for others, they feel good, but their labs are bad. My lupus has been under control for over 3 years and I have been trying to get pregnant for 2 years, with no luck. I am going to see a specialist in December to see if there is anything wrong. Good luck in your quest to have a child!

Re: Getting Pregnant

Achie, I think you should also ask your dr. whether a woman can take Prednisone during pregnancy. I hope things work out well for you, and quickly. Best wishes, Vee
