In brief: Yes
There are a number of successful pregnancies after kidney transplant in the us every year. It is regarded as a high risk pregnancy, and require care coordination of you transplant team and the obstetricians.

In brief: Absolutely!
It's quite possible to conceive and bear children if you are stable after a kidney transplant.
Some exceptions exist. One patient i know delivered healthy twins a year after her transplant! check with your transplant physician before taking or changing any medications!

In brief: Mothers + Fathers
The ability to be a biological parent is best restored by a well functioning kidney transplant.
There is no problem in sperm caused by the rejection meds. Women with txps do have "high risk" pregnancies because of increased risk of high blood pressure + the need to adjust med doses. If kidney function is poor, the risk of the kidney failing is real. But healthy babies are possible with good care.
