hey, i'm new to this forum, and i know this topic has already been discussed but i just wanted to bump it up to see if anyone else would care to share their experiences on this, had a sm. bowel resection last july. i got married in oct 09 so my hubby and i wanted to start trying for a baby, however when i came off the humira i begun to show signs of a flare up so now my doc wants to put me back on it indefinitely. i'm concerned about the fact that there is so little known on the effects of this drug on the developing foetus. my doc, like many, have said that the risk of having a baby during a flare up is far more risky than having a baby whilst on humira. i wouldnt get pg during a flare up, but i'm just not conviced about the humira, it's a powerful drug and cant see how it's completely harmless to a growing baby.. am i being over-paranoid here.. my mind is just racing to be honest, very broody and thought i'd be pregnant by now!!!! it's a setback to say the least!
so any input would be greatly appreciated, is it worth "taking a chance" on a new life...
thank you x
