Is Pregnancy Allowed to Women on DialysisIs pregnancy allowed to women on dialysis? It is a big concerned issue for the patients. Read on to find the answer.

Can all women on dialysis get pregnant?

It is reported that only 1 to 7 percent of women of childbearing age on dialysis can get pregnant,but around 90% of them can not get pregnant. Firstly,kidney disease can decrease the ability to product healthy eggs. Secondly,some women on dialysis may have irregular period and even have no menstruation due to irregular hormone levels in body.

Is pregnancy allowed to women on Dialysis?

In general, pregnancy is not recommended to women on dialysis because it may bring some risks for both mother and baby.Healthy kidneys work 24 hours a day,7 days a week to filter out wastes from body.However,if the women are on hemodialysis, it is only performed 12 hours per week and replaces only a portion of kidney function.Between dialysis treatments, high levels of wastes will build up in body, which may make it hard for the baby to develop.

Moreover,the baby will release wastes into the mother’s blood stream. Also,the blood volume will increase during pregnancy.As a result,the kidneys have to work overtime to filter blood.To keep the blood clean, Dialysis will have to be increased.

In addition,miscarriage and premature brith may occur in some cases.

How to improve the chance of having successful pregnancy?

If the women on dialysis still have a fair amount of residual renal function or have had a successful Kidney Transplant, the chances of getting pregnant will be increased.

Another way to improve the chance of having successful pregnancy is to improve renal function. Dialysis has no effect in improving renal function at all.Micro-Chinese Medicines Osmotherapy can stimulate the self-healing ability of the body to stimulate the self-regeneration of impaired kidney tissues, thus bringing about an improvement of renal function.In this way,the chances of getting pregnant will improve remarkably.
