Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic multisystem autoimmune disease with a heterogeneous pattern of clinical and serological manifestations. The predilection for women, particularly of childbearing age, combined with improved survival has led to increasing numbers of women with lupus considering pregnancy. Management of pregnancy in SLE however, requires careful planning and close medical and obstetric monitoring to ensure optimal outcomes. This review, discusses possible causes of subfertility, issues regarding contraception and family planning as well as management of lupus during pregnancy and outcomes in pregnant women with SLE.
