Is it safe to get pregnant with a connective tissue disorder?
It depends on the specific connective tissue disease and its severity. Women with certain connective tissue diseases, such as Marfan syndrome and Loeys-Dietz syndrome, may have an increased risk of pregnancy-related complications, such as aortic dissection, uterine rupture, and preterm labor. However, with proper medical management and close monitoring, many women with connective tissue diseases can have successful pregnancies. It's important to consult with a healthcare provider who is familiar with your specific condition and can provide guidance on the risks and benefits of pregnancy. If you are planning to get pregnant genetic screening and counseling is recommended.
