Intro: Hi – I’m Megan. I have UC – diagnosed in 2012. Currently in my second flare in two months. I am not a happy camper right now. Some more about me: I live in California and have two very rambunctious boys under the age of six. I am fortunate that my husband fishes the […]
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 […]
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 […]

So this page was created as a place for those of you to voice your own personal review of how L-Glutamine […]
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 […]
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?
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.
What this taught me, and ultimately what my experiences taught me, is that we need to be critical of every choice a doctor makes because our bodies reflect that choice, good or bad. Do research, use your common sense, THINK about what your GI is recommending and don’t be shy to voice your concerns.
It’s hard to see a show or play softball if, at any moment, all of a sudden I need to go to the bathroom, like within 30 seconds or I’ll have an accident. Also the fact that I can’t fart without feeling like I’m going to crap my pants. Ugh.

There’s alot of UC’ers who are wondering how other’s like you have done with the medication. Here is […]
Sauerkraut that has not been heated contains probiotics which I think are great for ulcerative colitis. The only thing is, you have to make sure you find sauerkraut which hasn’t already destroyed the probiotics, its out there, just need to find it in its raw form before pasturization.
Now that I’m fully back to feeling like myself, I guess it’s time to start dating again. Honestly, I’m nervous. I haven’t dated in years. I swear there should be a dating site for UCer’s haha. Less explaining required!
