All medication has the possibility of counteracting or causing side effects between themselves. For someone who has undergone a kidney transplant (I'll assume you were a recipeint and not a donor), it is likely that you will always need to take anti-rejections drugs. With the sensitivity of anti-rejection drugs, you may not want to take any form of birth control. Essentially, it isn't the birth control that you need to worry about, it is staying healthy. I would recommend you work with your transplant team and a fertility doctor to determine the best options for you. You're transplant success will be the determining factor in whether or not you can get pregnant later in life. Don't give up hope, but search for the best alternative for your health.

Kidney allocation is based on a mathematical formula that awards points for factors that can affect a successful transplant, such as time spent on the transplant list, the patient's health status, and age.
