Can women with kidney disease get pregnant?

Unlike men, it can be incredibly dangerous for women with kidney failure to mother a child. While men don’t have many problems fathering a child while experiencing kidney disease, women can put their health and their unborn child at risk. Since there are different stages of kidney disease, this is a tricky question. Almost every single time, it’s not up to the woman to have the ability to maintain a healthy pregnancy, but to the stage of their disease. Women who are experiencing stages 1 – 2 of kidney disease, otherwise known as “mild” kidney disease, can most times get pregnant without any issues. As for women who experience a more severe version of kidney disease though (stages 3 – 5), it’s highly recommended that they avoid pregnancy. Pregnancy during these stages of kidney disease can sometimes end up killing both the pregnant mother and the unborn child.

Kidney Disease In PregnancyWomen who suffered from kidney disease and have since received a kidney transplant can get pregnant as long as it’s been at least a year since the transplant and if the transplant was, obviously, successful. It’s also recommended to wait until they stop using after-surgery medications, as some of these medications, given a successful pregnancy, can be potentially harmful to the unborn child.

It’s recommended for sexually active women who suffer from severe kidney disease to use contraceptive methods in order to avoid getting pregnant, for kidney disease in pregnancy can be endangering to them. If you suffer from kidney disease and aren’t sure what kind of contraceptive (birth control) methods to use, or have any other questions, contact your doctor or a medical professional, they will be able to provide you with answers.
