Kidney transplantation part 28

Kidney 13


Sexuality and fertility after a transplant

Sexual activity will not harm your transplanted kidney. It will also not increase your risk of infection. It is recommended that you wait  about four weeks after your transplant before having sexual intercourse.

As your health improves after your kidney transplant your fertility may increase. This is true for both men and women.

If you are a woman and would like to have a baby it is usually suggested that you wait at least 1 year after your transplant before trying to get pregnant. This allows time for you to become stable on your anti rejection medication.

If you become pregnant some of your medications may need to be changed and you will be carefully monitored to make pregnancy safer for you and your baby.
