These are the times I am glad my real name is not disclosed.
I have a fistula located between the anus and vagina area which is starting to bother me. I just went to a walk in clinic this weekend because of severe tenderness during intercourse. As it turns out I think I am developing another fistula in the vagina region. My husband and I are trying to have our first child and we have not been successful. Now it hurts when ever we have intercourse. The Dr. put me on Cipro XL until I can see my specialist. From previous experience with my other fistula surgery is a complicated issue due to it's location, I can well imagine that this new one would be even more complicated. I was put on remicade awhile ago due to the first fistula and it seemed to work. Anyway are there any females out there with Crohn's who have experienced something similar and if they have what was the solution in the end. I would like to be as proactive as possible because we really would like to have children.
