Re: ? about crohns and fistula

I have thought about the remicade but my GI told me with the drug being so new that they could not tell me the effects it would have if i wanted to get pregnant or while i was pregnant. I dont see kids in my near future but i dont want to start something that could keep me from having kids. i am really looking forward to having kids. He said that the asacol can be taken durning pregnancy. So right now that is my choice. they would like me to try remicade but i am uncofortable with it, not knowing. my surgeon said that unless i started to have really big problems he didnt want to do anything becouse of how young i am. he is afraid of messing up my bowel control.
