Some women do have problems after a bout with PE, though I don't personally know much about that. Sometimes the PE is actually caused by an underlying condition such as an autoimmune disorder or clotting disorder. I suggest you get tested for those before another pregnancy. Also, your PE might have been chronic hypertension that was simply unmasked by the stresses of pregnancy. It doesn't look like that is the case, though I am no doctor. And obviously if you go through another pregnancy, your risk is somewhat higher and you should be watched closely for signs and symptoms of the PE coming back. I have heard women on here talk about it taking years for their bodies to return to normal, Congratulations on your recovery!
