The Cause Is Not Pregnant With A History Of Lupus?
At night, in the middle of 2016 I had been in pain myself until I could not move and a high fever that did not heal … So that I was hospitalized for almost 1 month, at first the doctor thought dengue fever, apparently not, the typhoid test was negative too .. finally in the second week the doctor performed the ANA test. It turned out that my ANA test was positive with a 1: 100 titer and anti Dsdna 1: 10. I was then treated with corticosteroid drugs for almost 6 months because the drug dosage gradually decreased and after a month I stopped taking it and actually I didn’t want to remember the disease again for fear I want to ask, I have been married for 1 year but not yet pregnant, my ovum is good my husband’s sperm too, is it because I have ever had lupus affect my fertility? Does my antibody consider sperm a foreign object and attack it? After I haven’t felt the symptoms of lupus for a long time, why should I consult a doctor?
Good evening, thanks for the question
Reproductive system disorders that occur in women with a history of SLE may be due to several reasons, including:
1. Development of the disease
2. Autoantibody reactions
3. Treatment of cytotoxic SLE
Disorders of the reproductive system make implantation of the fetus in the womb more difficult, obstacles in maintaining pregnancy after implantation, or complications during labor (premature, low birth weight, preeclampsia). But do not worry because the possibility of pregnancy remains wide open. But before planning a pregnancy you should consult with your doctor a lot in advance to find out what risks might arise.
That's all, hope you can help
