I have to agree with Erica...I have met with High Risk OB's at the best hospitals in Boston and they said it is ok to take 6MP and remicade while be preggo. They said they have delivered perfectly healthy babies from mothers who have taken the drugs. In fact remicade is a category B which is as safe as you can get. Not sure if you might consider changing to remi.
ALL doctors agreed and said it was better for the baby for the flare to be under control; healthy mom = healthy baby.
Good luck with your decision. I am right there with you! I just started 6MP and I am about
to do my 5th IVF cycle...prob. in May. I want to wait till I am in full remission....
