When I had the fistula I knew something was wrong b/c "babymaking" hurt so bad I felt like I was splitting in half. I was having a flare of my CD/colitis, along with sore in my mouth, so the DR did an exam down there and said I had a fistula/lesion that was a complication of the inflammatory disease. Once I had the prednisone and took a "break" from babymaking for about two weeks it healed. I have not had it happen again, but the doc said it could. Some signs that I was told to look for that the inflammation from IBD has gone systematic in the bloodstream: sores in the mouth, like a canker sore, a small bump along the eyelash line that itches(like a stye), red bumps on the legs/shins, and swellign of the ankles. He said that when the inflammation is systematic it attackes your largest organ (your skin),,just a thought.
