I was diagnosed with UC about four years ago. I tried everything from oral medications to enemas/supositories to research studies and nothing worked. At the beginning of this year i started Remicade infusions and it is finally starting to help, however i have to have both a very high dosage and i get the infusion every 6 weeks. I also take oral medications daily.
A year ago I got married to the most wonderful man in the world, we recently bought our first house and now we want to have children. My GI doctor is very nervous about me getting pregant while on Remicade and receiveing Remicade infusions during pregnacy.
Does any one have any advise???? Should we wait until I can come off of Remicade???? Any help or resources would be great!!!!
Thanks to all.
