New to the site with Crohns

Hi everyone-

So glad I found this forum.  Im 21 and was recently diagnosed with Crohns about 4 months ago.  Im just learning about this condtion and trying to understand it.  Right now Im taking Prednisone for a flare up and keep getting break through bleeding like Im gonna start my period.  Has anyone ever had this?      

I hope to make some new "chat Buddies" on this site.  Feeling very alone with this disease. :(

Hello-

I understand what youre going through.  Im very sorry to hear about your frustrations.  I have found that reaching out to people who have your condition is helpful for me.  Makes me feel less alone.  Preddnisone can cause bleeding.  I would of course check with your Dr but I think thats fairly common with prednisone.  You may want to make sre your birth control is effective if you are on it. :)  You will be in my prayers! take care!
