In brief: Yes
I ask my patients to wait at least one year after transplant.
We want to follow them closely while pregnant and we like to have a relationship with their OB provider.

In brief: Absolutely
It is recommended that you wait one year after your kidney transplant before attempting to become pregnant.
After this year, if things are going well then there should be no reason not to precede with family planning. However if there are issues with the transplant, then you may want to wait until these medical issues are resolved as a malfunctioning kidney could be dangerous to you and a child.
