Just a note to add that although passing on the disease may be a worry, there is so far NO PHYSICAL EVIDENCE indicating Lupus is hereditary. There are a lot of people who think it might be, as sometimes it looks like it runs in families -- but thinking it so isn't proof.
I'm like you originally, Anirock, I would be more concerned about
triggering my own lupus. I've read that they treat it like a high-risk pregnancy to make sure you are watched careful and problems are avoided. In some people, it has prompted a long-term lupus remission. And of course, there are others where it has made Lupus flare.
Hard decisions, and unfortunately no solid medical evidence to support either choice. Best wishes.
