New Findings Alleviate Fears about Pregnancy and Damage Accrual in Women with Lupus - Lupus Foundation of America

Results from a recent study suggest that pregnancy, either before or after lupus diagnosis, does not have a significant impact on chronic damage accrual in women with the disease. Using the Systemic Lupus International Collaborating Clinics/American College of Rheumatology Index (SDI), researchers assessed damage scores of child-bearing and non-child-bearing women with lupus and found that pregnancies were not significant predictors for long-term damage accrual, regardless of pregnancy timing before or after diagnosis. While disease activity tended to be higher in women with children, this difference was not statistically significant.
