  • My sister is suffering from sacroiliitis. Will it affect her chances of getting pregnant?

    Well first of all it is important to know whether sacroiliitis is related to spondyloarthropathies, systemic inflammatory arthritis like RA or connective tissue disorders. Are these the only joints involved or she have polyarticular involvement. Some of inflammatory arthritis may get better during pregnancy and others like related to lupus may get worse. Some of medications used to treat inflammatory arthritis may not be used during pregnancy and actually medications like methotrexate or leflunomide can induce abortion. As the pregnancy advances increase in mechanical pressure may worsen lower back or SI joint pain. Recommendation is to control inflammatory arthritis first and once it is in god control then plan for conception. She may need to work with Rheumatologist for better control of her disease and then planned conception. Hope my answer will satisfy you. Zeeshan Afzal MD. Consultant Rheumatologist. READ MORE
