Hi left a message yesterday with the forum stating that I am pregnant and I have active disease that I can not control.  My doctor suggested prednisone but like a lot of people I can't function on prednisone.  So I was wondering if anyone who was pregnant with active disease has ever been on Humira at the same time?!  I hope someone will know.
Thanks a bunch confused

I'm currently 19.5 weeks and pregnant with my second child and on Humira. My CD isn't active though - thanks to Humira. Let me know if you have any questions.

I am on HUmira I am not pregnant yet but hoping after this fistula surgery that when healed...and after a colonoscopy 6 months after my next surgery...that my husband and i will get the green light to start a family. I know I will need a high rish OBGYN and actually have to cantact the one I is actually my colorectal surgeon's Wife. I have gone to fetal maternal medicine before I was married just to sit down with the doc there and talk about my meds...this was before humira before all of these surgeries I have had this was about 5 months before we got married.

I have asked my GI about the HUmira and he feels as though if it is the med that controls my symptoms or what I am hoping for is to go back into remission then it is safer to stay on the med than to go off of it wheich may cause a bad flare endangering both you and the unborn child. I recall reading on the official HUmira site that they are asking people to register with them if they are currently on HUmira and become pregnant. I believe they are just collecting more data. So far I do not think they have found negative effects. Like most meds I highly doubt breast feeding will be allowed afterwards but that is with most meds and I am on lots of meds for other things as well...asthma, migraines, etc

GL with your pregnancy and the HUmira. I have found that my humira does help I am still having this fistul,a but the drainage and size of it is about half as much compared to when I was not on it. I am hoping to get the green light sometime in 2008. please keep me updated on any complications that arise and all of that knowing that I too will most likely will have to remain on humira when that time comes for me

I finally got my Humira starter kit on Friday!!

We have one child, but are thinking about trying again late, late next year maybe. It all depends on this Humira situation. I'd like to get updated from those of you who remain on the medication throughout pregnancy.
