Hi! Sounds like u have plenty of time to figure it all out....talk to your GI about this subject also.
Colazal is a class B drug, able to be used in pregnancy. I am not sure which can't be used, remicade or imuran...check into this.
I took 6mp through out my pg, under the care of a perinatologist(high risk pregnancy doctor) along w/ my OB and my GI. They all agreed that remission or under control UC was better than flaring UC. Flaring in early pg, can lead to many complications.
I did not have any issues related to the 6mp. However, i did flare almost right away after being in remission 1 yr prior to getting pg. I ended up on 40mg pred twice during, and remained on 10 mg till delivery. I went into preterm labor at 25wks, and stopped meds because i wanted to breast feed a preemie...i delivered at 34wks and breastfed till baby was 8wks old, and was flaring to bad and had to stop so i could get back on my meds ( u can NOT breastfeed on 6mp).
