DAY 6: Autoimmune Disease
When it comes to autoimmune disease and Fertility, there are many different diseases to consider.
If you have been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, you need to discuss with your health practitioner:
- How the disease may impact your fertility

In the clinic, we see a variety of autoimmune diseases. The more common ones include:
- Diabetes (including gestation diabetes)
