Re: pregnancy

I am sorry to say that I don't know that much about getting pregnant and how crohn's affects it, but I will tell you this. You cannot take any of the drugs that treat crohn's, because alot of them are immunosuppresants, and cause bad side affects for baby. I took asacol while I was pregnant and it was safe. But the other treatments are dangerous. Hope this helps.
