Yes: Yes, but you need to confer with doctors first. Discoid on occasion can transition to systemic lupus so you would want to get checked. Also you would need to have medications reviewed with your doctor. Plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine) is safe in pregnancy, but if you are on medications such as methotrexate, these would have to be stopped long before any attempts at conception are made. See your doctor to talk more.
