In Reply We thank Adelekun and colleagues for their response to our Editorial1 calling for accelerated hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) research and improved care of patients with HS. We wholeheartedly agree that more evidence about the effects of HS on fertility, pregnancy, maternal and fetal outcomes, and lactation is needed to help guide optimal care of patients with HS who are of childbearing potential.
