Lupus

Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body, including the skin, joints, and organs inside the body. About 9 out of 10 adults with lupus are women. Some women have only mild symptoms. But, for others, lupus can cause severe problems. Women with lupus need to be especially careful to manage their symptoms when planning a pregnancy.
