SLE, Lupus Nephritis, IVF


I have SLE, and I'm currently in remission from lupus nephritis. I changed from MMF to azathioprine at the end of January due to my desire to start a family. Unfortunately, due to a separate issue I will need to have IVF to conceive; we have our first IVF appointment in April!!! I was hoping someone out there may have a similar story, and could share how they responded to IVF whilst of azathioprine?

Thanks 😊

  • Hi Cameron25,

    You may want to take a look at this post from last year - It is from somebody with lupus who was undergoing IVF and in the comments I included some information about IVF in lupus from The Lupus Encyclopedia.

    If you need more information about lupus and pregnancy, you can read and download our booklet at

  • Thanks Paul...that's been really helpful 😊

  • Hi there, hope you are well. I wondered how you got on with your IVF and if you had any insight into this? I have SLE (on azathioprine too) and am due to start IVF in the next couple of weeks!
