Are You Able to Have Children with Medullary Sponge Kidney

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2012-10-04 09:54

"I was diagnosed with Medullary Sponge Kidney in Feb of 2012. Knock on wood. I've been fortunate enough to live a relatively normal life, with the exception constant UTIs. I'm an MSK noob and want to know whether I am able to get pregnant with this disease?"

In general, MSK does not impede fertility. As long as both kidneys are still functioning, it would not affect patients' pregnancy. However, it is necessary to talk with the doctor in details before getting pregnant. Then he can give you a detailed analysis of your condition.

You doesn't mention your blood pressure level. If your MSK is complicated with elevated blood pressure and the blood pressure is out of control, it will increase your risk of pregnancy. Once a patient described her situation as below:

"I started having many UTIs and bladder infection in my teen years so they started to running test after test and found out that I had MSK. Now, I have 3 sons. My first 2 pregnancies was in my early 20's and I had no problem but my last pregnancy in 28 I had already develop some MSK complications for a few years prior to that. When I finally get pregnant I had huge issues the whole pregnancy (in and out of the hospital), ending up delivering my son at 37 weeks."

Besides, if women with MSK have developed severe renal insufficiency, they are not recommended to get pregnant. It will put extra strain on the mother's kidneys, thus aggravating kidney function.

MSK effects everyone differently. Specific answer should be given based on personalized analysis of the illness condition. Our doctors are available to provide free help for you, you can leave us a message or Email to kidneyabc@hotmail.com .
