hi... i wish yo everyone good

I have UC for 9 years. sometimes it gets sever and sometimes its normal
but after i get married, it get better with the medications
after my pregnancy i quit the medication because the doctor said that it may affect the fetus; he descriped for me pentasa enema but it's not so affected
after my delivery, i got wors and i couldnt take any medication because of breast feeding, so i stop the breast feeding to take the medication when my baby was only 3 months old.
I gust get better with the medications when my child reached 1 year, and i feel that i couldnt do much for her because of my illness!!
and now she is 1 year and 10 months and im thinking about having another baby, but im afraid that i have the same problems that i had before

when i read about the pentasa, i sow that its ok to take it in pregnancy but no breast feeding. And the salofalk cant take it in any of these periods.
when i asked the doctor for medication that may be safe in the both he said there is not!!
but when i read what women said in this forum some of them saied its ok!!

sorry about my long story hehehe,, and sorry for my baaaaaad language but I REALLY need help

Welcome to the Forum! If you put "pregnancy" in your title, you will likely get replies from several women posting here who are experienced with use of meds during pregnancy & breastfeeding. One of them is *Jen*, who just had her 2nd baby about 3 months ago. / Old Hat (nearly 30 yrs with left-sided UC ... [etc.])
