Is it safe to get pregnant after transplantation?

safetogetpregnantA small number of people have become pregnant after combined heart-lung or lung transplant but this remains extremely rare. Pregnancy has also been successful following single kidney, liver or heart transplants, and there appears to be no additional risk of organ rejection (failure). However, it is advisable to wait for at least a year after your transplant before discussing with your CF and transplant teams the possibility of becoming pregnant.

Some of the medications may need to be altered or stopped before pregnancy and you may need additional monitoring during your pregnancy.
