In brief: See below
Hydronephrosis may have left you with a reduced kidney function, which may affect your pregnancy.
The doctor can help you understand the risks of taking contraceptive pills vs the hazards if any of a pregnancy with reduced kidney function. It all depends on the extent of loss of kidney function.
