Probably safe: You need to discuss with your doctor. Is your aa in remission? Are you requiring transfusions? What about any other health problems? Lots of unknowns. My understanding is that transfusion requirements might go up during pregnancy but most of the time it is safe if you are well compensated when you get pregnant.
