Hey there. My wife and I were in a very similar situation. I was on Asacol, 6MP and Predisone areound the time we conceived. i was so worried throughout the pregnancy. My GI doc was not too familiar with the affects on male sperm, but after doing some research, he said that there should be no negative affects. Our OBGYN suggested that we get additional testing, see a genetic counselor, etc. it was a nightmare for my wife and I, and I had the guiltiest feeling for the first few months... truely awful. Luckily, all of the testing came back clear, and she gave birth to a very healty (and handsome
) baby boy in Sept. 2009. Best of luck to you! Im sure it will work out just fine.
on a similar note, we're deciding if we want to try for a 2nd child. im still on the Prednisone, but not the asacol or 6MP. i have not responded well to anything except Prednisone, and whenever i taper down to about 15-20MG, my symptoms seem to return. My doc suggested Remicade as a treatment... i need to do a lot of research on Remicade/pregnancy now .
