Our Topic of the Month discussion for March is 'Pregnancy & Lupus'.
Lupus is a disease which predominantly affects women and often first presents during the childbearing years. In the past women with SLE were discouraged from pregnancy due to concerns about the effects of the disease on the mother and baby. However, medical practice has changed and in many cases, with close supervision and planning pregnancy is possible.
We want to hear your experiences of pregnancy with lupus. Did you have extra check-ups and monitoring? Was your treatment adjusted during the pregnancy? Do you have any advice for anyone with lupus considering/planning a pregnancy?
We would like to hear all of your tips and experiences and we’ll compile them towards the end of the month for an article. Please share in the comments section below, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The article itself will be posted on the LUPUS UK Blog at
