In brief: Issue is safety
Issue is safety. Conception should not be an issue as long as the anticoagulant effect controlled and warfarin/coumadin not used.

In brief: Decreased
The chance of infertility and recurrent miscarriage is increased in women with lupus anticoagulant.
There are, however, other factors that also need to be considered, such as age, whether or not the woman has had a blood clot or has a family history of clotting, and whether or not she has a systemic disease like lupus. There are also treatments to help, like Heparin and aspirin.
