Hi Everyone,

Just a quick introduction. My signature should give a little background on me (I hope that I set it up correctly).
But...I'm 30yrs old, just had my second major flare since dx and not dealing very well with it. My husband and I have been trying for children since Nov.08 with no luck and I'm wondering if its due to the Crohn's. I saw a few posts down discussing infertility and Crohn's, so I can't wait to offer support to others and receive some when its needed!

Have a great night and thanks for listening! turn
Dx: Crohn's in 2008 (after 10 yrs of symptoms)
Laporoscopy 10/07, Pentasa, Entocort, Prednisone (not working)
6mp - Nov/07-Nov/08 (worked great, but went off the meds in hopes of conceiving-no luck)
Remission until 2/10...Major Flare 3/10
Meds:Prednisone taper and back on the 6mp, Vit.D, Culturelle, Folic Acid, Pre-Natal Vitamin

Welcome to the Forum KEL1318!  You will find lots of caring people here who share and support each other.  I am sorry you are having problems.  This disease can affect so many things -- well beyond your gut.  I hope the 6MP kicks in soon and you get out of that flare!

Take care!

Diagnosed with Crohn's in early 2007.  Several peri-rectal abscesses and two fistulae with setons.  Allergic to Remicade and Humira.  Currently on 6MP, and vitamins D and B-12.
