Hi Everyone your conversations about
Lialda, Remicade, Steroids etc and pregnancy have been very helpful to me. My husband and I want to try to have a baby and my specialists don't want me taking even Lialda. Asocal is the only medication that they want me on. After reading your posts especially about
what your doctor (Tats) said about
the Remicade makes me wonder if my doc just does not have a lot of experience with Pregnancy and UC. May I ask if any of you are located in Colorado? If so I would love to get the name of your doctor especially you Tats. I am looking for a doctor with more experience with this. I don't want to end up not having a baby because my doctors are unaware.
sorry hun,,im in Manhattan, NY..But i spoke to a few specialists. My primary care physician was giving me the remicade,,not my gi doctor..i was scheduled for a remicade infusion on Sept 4,,and i didnt go..i called my doctor n told him i was pregnant,,he said that he doesnt wanna do the remicade,,cuz he doesnt know alot about
it during pregnancy,,and that in some people pregnancy changes everything..sometimes for the better..b4 i called him i went to see a specialist in New brunswick, NJ he only specializes in colitis n crohns..he said remicade is safe,,hes had hundreds of women who've had perfectly health babys,,on remicade as well as the prednisone. for now im on asacol 4pills 3xs a day...but im starting to feel a little flareish,,i tend to not eat till i get home,,which is bad..I'm going to a new Gi doctor on monday,,i will ask him wat he recommends,,i kinda feel like i have to be on something..i really dont wanna do the remicade,,and i hate steroids,,but i just mite have to do the steroids...i will let u know when i get home monday what he recommends,,becuz he will be working directly with my ob/gyn...dont stop urself from having a baby becuz of somebody who doesnt know wat he's doing. by the way how bad is ur colitis?
