Will donating one kidney hinder pregnancy later?

Q: I am a 22-year-old female. My husband has been having kidney problems for a very long time. At the end of last year, he had to go on dialysis; he has practically no kidney function at all. I am considering donating one of my kidneys to him. I read somewhere that it gets difficult to conceive with one kidney, and this is holding me back. What is the average percentage of pregnancy after donating a kidney?

A:There is absolutely no difference in the percentage of conception in people with one kidney or in those who have donated a kidney. Even women with a kidney transplant and on immunosuppressive drugs have borne children normally. So you can go ahead and donate a kidney to your husband without any hesitation on this score. In fact, your husband’s potency and fertility will normalise after kidney transplant.
