Autoimmune diseases have no cure, but there are different pharmacological treatments that improve the patient's quality of life. Most drugs are immunosuppressants such as cyclophosphamide and methotrexate, although these drugs have teratogenic effects on the fetus. In addition, another common drug is corticosteroids such as prednisone.
In any case, medication administered for the treatment of autoimmune diseases is generally contraindicated during pregnancy and lactation. The severity of the disease should be assessed in case of stopping such medication during the search for pregnancy and in the 9 months of pregnancy.
