Thank you for your question. I will need to do more research about this important question. Have you discussed this with your lupus specialist? S/he may be able to refer you to a gynaecologist who treats women with lupus.

You are also very welcome to post this question at the LuPUS Message Board @ - you will need to register which is free.

With good wishes,



thank u I will do


For me it was quite easy my hubby had the snip. So I didn't need to worry about contraception.
