In brief: Watch the kidney+ BP

The kidney function needs to be followed and closely monitored.
An elevation in the blood pressure can occur and can be a serious problem. You will need careful monitoring and high risk ob, your rheumatologist and renal followup.

In brief: Variable, individual

Before conception, use of certain medications may cause fertility problems or birth defects.
During pregnancy, it is important to monitor for kidney and hypertensive complications; also there may be a higher risk of stillbirth as a consequence. Since scleroderma may affect each person to a different degree, speak with your doctors well before planning a pregnancy.
