I know two girls that have implants and have been both recently diagnosed with lupus, which is an auto immune disease. I'm windering if there's a connection? I've thought about getting them myself but I don't know, seems risky as I am in really good health. Your body was designed to reject things put in it that wasn't supposed to be in it, hence your body fighing off infections. It can't be that good to have a foreign object in your body for such a long period of time with no consequences I would imagine. What are your thoughts?

No implants, no cronic health problems, except migranes, which I have had since I was 7 years olds.

I have saline implants, have had them for 10 years now, no health problems, except hypothyroidism, which I have had for 15 years.

No implants, but I still have lots of health problems. On the other hand, my friend had had implants for years and she is very healthy.

 I know plenty of women who have them with no problems. Your body does adjust to things like that.

It can be risky. It's sort of a hit or miss. Some women's bodies reject them and some accept them. I want to get implants. I think the risk is low and there is no direct correlation to lupus.
