I usually schedule my scopes about 3 months in advance. But as for the frequency, it can depend on many things. How often you flare, how severe it is and how long you've had it. I've had Uc for 16 years and I had my initial scope then one 8 years later and now that I'm past the 10 year mark I go every 2 years however I have had sigmoidoscopies every year up until my 10th year.
