I Does rheumatoid arthritis have any impact on fertility or pregnancy?

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), another one of the autoimmune conditions, does impact on fertility in that it may increase the risk of miscarriage through the production of autoantibodies such as antiphospholipid antibodies (APAs), which sometimes attack the body’s own tissues. RA occurs in around 1 in every 1,500 pregnancies, and as with other autoimmune disorders, pregnancy improves the condition for many women, though they often relapse a few months after giving birth. A specialist will determine which drugs are safe to use for treatment of RA during pregnancy.
