1 doctor agrees

In brief: One Kidney and Preg

Yes, with one kidney and approximately 50% of normal overall kidney function, fertility is retained and pregnancy is possible.
Conception and retention is a bit impaired at that level of kidney function, and as kidney functions decline further, fertility is further impaired. But chronic dialysis females conceive pregnancies and deliver. So - yes, is possible; if pregnancy happens, is HIGHER RISK
