I have had UC since I turned 18-I am now 25. I was first put on Asacol for a few months and then my doctor switched me to Colozal (9 pills a day). I had my first flare up in 4 years back in June and became extremely sick. I believe it was due to the stress of planning my wedding, buying a house, and finding out my dad has cancer. However, things have since calmed down and I am much better. My doctor has since changed my medication to 12 pills of Colozal a day and 3 pills of Entocort a day.
My husband and I are ready to start trying to get pregnant and I don't know how these medications will affect my baby if/when I get pregnant. Does anyone have any advice for me??? My doctor is on vacation for the next week and I would really like to know what others have experienced with this. Please help! I hate feeling like I am in the dark about this.
Thanks so much!!!
