The cause of ulcerative colitis is unknown and people with this condition may have flaring up of symptoms during stress and intake of certain foods .The chances of pregnancy, having a healthy baby are no different than any other woman. The most important thing you can do is to get active ulcerative colitis under control and into remission before trying to get pregnant. Consult your gastroenterologist and your obstetrician and discuss that you are planning to conceive. That will help you in preventing relapses and ensuring optimum nutrition during pregnancy.

Best wishes and regards!
