Can Lupus Nephritis Patients Get PregnantAlmost every married young woman is eager to join the ranks of mothers, even those with Lupus Nephritis. Can Lupus Nephritis patients get pregnant? Read on to learn more information.

What kind of Lupus Nephritis patients can be pregnant?

Pregnancy has been thought to lead to the recurrence and deterioration of lupus nephritis, so it is often suggested to avoid pregnancy. But in recent years, a large number of materials show that as long as patients meet the following conditions, they can get pregnant.

-No unexplained fever within one year;

-There are no multiple arthritis;

-No facial eruption such as butterfly erythema;

-Normal blood pressure;

-Urinary liquefaction tests are performed once a month for 12 times without cells and proteins;

-The kidney function is normal;

-Various serological tests turn negative for more than one year;

-When cytotoxic drugs (such as cyclophosphamide) are discontinued for more than one year, pregnancy has no effect on both mother and fetus.

Pregnancy does not increase the reactivation rate of patients with lupus nephritis, and has little effect on the long-term prognosis of lupus nephritis.

Besides, patients should be physically and mentally comfortable, good appetite, energetic, and responsive. Although these are not rigid indicators, they are necessary conditions for pregnancy, and are important factors to ensure the quality of pregnancy.

With the above conditions, patients must also obtain the consent of urologists, and get pregnant under the guidance of both urologists and obstetricians.

Because lupus is harmful to all blood vessels, including placenta and uterus. If lupus is active during pregnancy, it can cause stillbirth and premature placenta dissection. The latter cause massive hemorrhage and death of pregnant women. Therefore, patients with lupus nephritis should visit the hospital every two weeks during pregnancy. During the whole pregnancy and two months after delivery, they should be closely monitored by doctors in order to prevent lupus activity from being handled in time. Some scholars believe that once pregnant, patient should take prednisone 20 mg every other day until 8 weeks postpartum so as to reduce the chance of lupus activity. If lupus activity unfortunately occurs, the standard steroid course of treatment should be used, and azathioprine should be added if necessary.
