I know of people that have had IUDs and Crohn's and I have not heard of an issue, but your physician should know the safety on this issue.
I wish you the best.
Thank you for posting this! I was wondering the same thing!!!!!!
I have an IUD and it was put in place in Jan 2000 so I have mine for almost 8 years. I might have it taken out at my 10 year point and put right back in. I have not had any problems with it but mine was out in before I knew I had CD.
I have the copper style that does not contain any hormones etc...
Diagnosed w/ Crohn’s Disease March 2007 On 150mg Azathioprine (generic Imuran), Pentasa, & Entocort (take zofran for nausea now)
Diagnosed w/ Fibromyalgia May 2007 also on Soma
Also have Arthritis, and feel like I am falling apart sometimes...
