While counselling is mentioned, this is in relation to medical and not psychological aspects. Please contact me for information regarding psychological counselling.

Dr. Khamashta: Many of my patients say to me, “Doctor, I have lupus. Does that mean my daughter will have lupus or my son will have lupus?”; “I have rheumatoid arthritis. Does that mean my children will have the disease?” And this is also an important part of the counseling. There is no doubt that there is a genetic component, and we tell our patients with lupus and rheumatoid arthritis that there is perhaps a 3% to 5% chance that their children will have the disease. Most patients accept that small risk.

I wish I had known that I had Lupus when I was expecting my children, as I had some very bazaar symptoms. But what I do know is, that when I was pregnant that was when I felt my best.

Head not functioning well at the moment. Hope it makes sense.

Dear Lizzy,

Many lupus patients report that during pregnancy their lupus seemed to go into remission but flared following child birth.

Your post does make sense, but you sound quite poorly and I am concerned about you, so please look after yourself.

Be well!

Ros
