Trying to conceive and UC medication


Sat, September 14, 2019 10:59 PM

Hello,
 
My wife and I are trying to conceive. I have UC, have been on mesalamine 4.8g for years with no flares. Got a flare about 2 1/2 months ago and have been taking prednisone 40mg to help. After being admitted to hospital for steroids IV for three days, was told I will need to switch to a biologic in coming weeks.  Is there any issue with trying to conceive while taking the prednisone and soon the biologic? Thank you.
