I am a 22 year old female. When i was 13 i was diagnosed with lumbar scoliosis and my curve was 75 degrees to left. I was operated with implants to fix my spine curve. And now its been 8 years I got operated, I lead a normal life with implants in my body, but i experience back pain, body pains and numbness in limbs occasionally. And 4 years ago I have been diagnosed with subclinical hypothyroidism and I'm not on any kind of treatment for it. I got married last year and now we are planning for a child. I have no idea what would me and my husband do with my health complications. I don't even know I could ever conceive, many people say I can't do it. I am in a sort of depression since when people started saying so and lack of guidance.

My question is could I ever conceive ??? Will I hav complications in my pregnancy ??? Would it give any negative effect on my child ???
Can anyone clarify this for me??? It would be a great help. Eagerly awaits for reply. Thanks for your time.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. My advice is to stop taking the advice of anyone but your gynecologist and the physician who manages your scoliosis. These are the two experts who know your medical and surgical history. Together, these specialist can advise you regarding your ability to conceive and caring the pregnancy to full term.

Please do not despair until you and your husband have consulted the specialists.
