Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
As you are a patient of nephrotic syndrome, you can get yourself pregnant but yours will be a high risk pregnancy. In your disease, protein is excreted out from the body and baby needs good protein for its proper growth. There are chances of growth retardation in the baby.
