15 yrs post transplant, can I try to get pregnant?

User Profile
I had my kidney transplant 15.8 years ago, when I was 16. I am 32 now and looking to get pregnant. My creatine goes back and forth between 1.4 and 1.6. Everything else is normal and I am in great health. No HBP or any other concerns. Given my creatnine level and time post transplant, can I try to get pregnant?

Hello and thank you for posting your medical question on E health forum.

From the history provided, it seems that your creatinine levels seem to be normal.

There would be no risk or contraindication for becoming pregnant in your case.

You will benefit by consulting your nephrologist and get a few tests to know the bseline values of kidney function and urine protein levels, before you become pregnant. You will need to work in close connection with your doctors so that urine protein levels, creatinine levels, blood pressure and other parameters are under control.

I hope this helps.
