I am 25 yrs old and I was diagnosed with UC when I was 16. I am currently on 2000mg Pentasa twice daily and 75mg Imuran ( azathioprine) once daily. I haven't had a flare up in over a year. So all is good only now my partner and I would like to try for a baby.
I have discussed this with my consultant and she advised not to come off any medication as a flare up would be worse for the baby than the meds.
The only thing is, I have been looking into the effects of Imuran and it gives awful side effects including miscarriage and fetal disformaties.
I am just looking to see if anyone has any info on what I should do. And if any women out there have taken this medication through pregnancy. Any info at all would be great.
Thank you ☺
