Is there something to the new research regarding people who grew up on livestock farms and their smaller probability of getting IBD in the future. Much has to do with exposure to bacteria at an early age when the immune system is developing, what do you think?
Below are all the questions and responses listed as a percent (%) from the 832 people who took part in the survey. MAKE SURE to check out the pictures that about 60 people sent in below as well…just to make sure you know what some photo taking colitis people look like:) AND, a special thanks […]
Introduction: I’m Graham from South East England, 40 years old and diagnosed with proctitis then UC over 10 years ago. I didn’t make the connection at the time but this illness made itself known to me shortly after quitting smoking. This story may sound hard to believe but I’ve had a massive breakthrough and I […]

Would you be interested in meeting up with other UC’ers who use this website and the iHaveUC Facebook Page???? That is what this post is all about, and I’m betting that there’s quite a few of you who would be thrilled to hang out with some other UC’ers wherever you live, but I need to know for sure.
I really want to find a specialist but one who believes there is a cure or that I can be in “remission” without having to take meds that don’t technically work. I am open to natural remedies.
My biggest worry now is how will my UC effect getting pregnant or will my children have colitis. We are talking about starting a family and that is weighing heavy on my mind. I wonder if I’ll be able to conceive, I’m not sure if any of the procedures I’ve had done or medications I’ve been on for my UC will effect my fertility at all.

I am so tired of this disease and all that comes with it. I want to go back to work – I am going back to work next year. I cannot be running to the bathroom in the middle of a lesson and leaving 30 kids in a class room. So I am going to do it.
A mother’s perspective and questions as her 21 year old son in college is battling UC. Doctor’s have prescribed lialda and 6-MP but the family has deep concerns with regards to side effects and how these medications will potentially effect having children.
