I was pregnant last year and had a miscarriage. My husband and I have been trying to become pregnant for the last two or three months but haven’t been successful. My question is can my lupus prevent me from getting pregnant and can it prevent me from ever becoming pregnant? Also, could my lupus have caused my miscarriage?
