Hello everyone, yet another question.
I know I need to see a GYN but I was just wandering if anyone has had a similar situation and could share what happened to them. I am 22 years old and have had Crohns since I was 12. I started menstration at about 11 years old but as soon as I got sick with Crohns about 9 months later, I stopped having them for a while and then they started back irregularly after a few years. This went on for about 2 years of them being irregular. Then when I was in highschool they stopped completely. I have not been flaring this whole time, but even when I am in complete remission they do not start back again. I have only been to a GYN once when I was in high school and I am a virgin(and will be until I am married) so until now I haven't seen the need to go to one. I know I need to see one but I was wandering if there are others who have had the same thing happen.
I would be devistated if I couldnt have children, and I know I need to see a GYN to figure out what is happening but just looking for some encouragement I guess and truth. If anyone has had this happen or has some advice I would be very appreciative! =)
