Abstract:

With advances in genitourinary reconstructive surgery, women with exstrophy-epispadias complex (EEC) have improved health and quality of life, and may reach reproductive age and consider pregnancy. Despite literature suggesting impaired fertility and higher risk with pregnancy, childbirth is possible. Medical comorbidities, including müllerian anomalies, contribute to increased risk of obstetric and urologic complications during pregnancy.
