Pregnancy after transplantation

Years and years of progress in medicine, pharmacy and other fields of science related to the transplantation process have enabled a better and longer life for people with transplanted organs. As the quality of life increases, so do various opportunities for organ recipients. One of the specific life opportunities is procreation, that is, parenthood. Transplantation gives many people the ability to conceive, i.e., get pregnant, given that the disease that ultimately led to the organ transplantation has often taken away that same ability. 

The first successful pregnancy after transplantation was recorded already in 1958; and today an increasing number of people are opting for pregnancy after transplantation.


How long does it take to get pregnant after a transplant?

Each case is individual, as is the person and their condition, so it is important to consult with experts before attempting to conceive. Ideally, the person should be in a stable condition and the received organ should function as expected. 

Every person is different, and every pregnancy is unique. Statistics and the number of people who decide to become pregnant after a transplant show that it is possible to maintain a healthy pregnancy and decide to start a family. Since these are people with a history of the disease, the transplant process behind them, and the pharmacotherapy they take, it is extremely vital to consult with the medical team and experts before deciding on pregnancy and during the pregnancy.
