C-Section delivery causing crohns/colitis issues

Tue, March 16, 2021 4:32 PM

Has there been any corolation between women that have never had bowel issues before. After having a c-section delivery, causing or experencing colits or crohns symptoms.  Also if so has any of the standard medications worked for you? 
I was diagnosed after my last pregancy c-section delivery and no medications have worked or has made my symptoms worse. 
I wanted to know if I was being diagnosed wrong because it presents as crohns/colitis but not actually it.

It is common to have questions and concerns in reference to pregnancy or postnatal care and IBD. You may find it helpful to view our fact sheet on “Pregnancy and IBD” go to 

pregnancyfactsheet.pdf (
In addition, you may find it beneficial to to speak with other women who understand what you are going through after pregnancy. Many IBD patients and their families find support groups to be a valuable resource for information, support and guidance. If you would like information on support groups click here Crohn’s and Colitis Support Group | Crohn's & Colitis Foundation. Lastly, if you think it may be helpful to connect with a peer to discuss your concerns related to pregnancy and post natal care click here to join our power of two program Power of Two | Crohn's & Colitis Foundation.
