Will Horseshoe Kidney Have Affect on PregnancyHorseshoe kidney is a kind of congenital anomalies of the kidneys. Many women of childbearing age are wondering if horseshoe kidney will have affect on their pregnancy.

If their renal functions are normal and no infections occur, the patients can have successful pregnancy and there is nothing to worry. In fact, horseshoe kidneys themselves do not have any affect on pregnancy at all.

However, the patients with horseshoe kidney usually develop a myriad of complications. Abnormalities in the drainage system is commonly seen in horseshoe kidney. If this condition occurs, there is a tendency for urine to flow backwards from the bladder to the kidney. If so, the patients are at high risk of developing urinary tract infection.

Another serious complication of horseshoe kidney is hydronephrosis which can cause kidney stones. If hydronephrosis occurs, it may affect renal function and pregnancy may aggravate the condition. If hydronephrosis is not serious, it will not affect the pregnancy.

However, if the patients with horseshoe kidney have serious kidney function decline, pregnancy may cause some risks to them.

The strain of pregnancy on body along with serious kidney damage will cause a myriad of pregnancy complications like premature delivery, eclampsia, stillbirth, etc. Additionally, your kidneys have to work harder to filter wastes produced by both mother and baby, which will certainly cause further damage to kidneys.
