Pregnancy risks in women with lupus

Women with lupus erythematosus can become pregnant, as their fertility is not affected. However, it is important that they have a good medical control of the pregnancy since there is an increased risk of:

  • Preeclampsia.
  • Spontaneous abortion.
  • Premature delivery.
  • Low birth weight.
  • Thrombosis.

Before trying to become pregnant, it is also essential to consult with the doctor about the state of the disease. There should be no active foci or presence of certain antibodies.
