Post subject: 6-8 weeks pregnant and have ulcerative colitis
I have ulcerative colitis and wondering how its is going to affect my pregnancy. We think I am between 6-8 weeks pregnant. I am taking my medication, asacol, which I have checked with the doctor and am ok to continue. However the colitis seems really bad, last night I went to the toilet four times which I never normally have to get up during the night. A friend of mine said most people UC goes into remission when pregnant. Could mine still go Into remission or am I stuck with this awful diarrhoea all the way through pregnancy?
Thanks again for any help or advice x
