If the hormonal derangement is successfully corrected, there should be no problem in having a normal uneventful pregnancy in future. The arthritis needs to be monitored. Though it usually is not the cause for infertility, it may complicate a pregnancy through exacerbation and deformities and therefore, prenatal assessment of the extent of the disease is a must. Please discuss with your health care provider before you proceed. Wish you good luck.
