Hi All, I have read some helpful posts and am pleased to have finally joined a group looking at BS. I am 5 months pregnant and suffer from genital, mouth, intestine and bowel ulcers. My healing is prolonged plus I have fatigue and achy joints. I take azathioprine and dermovate cream for ulcers
My obstetrician initially suggested a c section birth because of steroid ointment on my genitals weakening that area and danger of damage to that area (through natural birth) could affect my long term bowel continence. He was also concerned of the healing time and impact from a c section. He has now spoken to 'seniors' and suggested a natural birth. Does anyone have experience of the better option or any helpful advice on what I should do? I don't want long term bowel continence issues but equally a c section will be hard to recover from too. Thanks everyone.
