PSIP Description: 
Experts explore the connection between Crohn's Disease and fertility and pregnancy.
Long Description: 
When a young woman is diagnosed with Crohn's Disease her first question, a prominent expert says, is about the disease itself-but her second question is: "Can I have a baby?" In this program we explore the connection between Crohn's Disease and fertility and pregnancy. We meet a young Crohn's Disease patient who is looking forward to starting a family with her husband, but must first work with her doctor to get the disease and the inflammation under control. We'll hear from experts about why it's so important to bring the disease under control before becoming pregnant and keep it from flaring during the pregnancy and after delivery of the baby. We'll also hear how research efforts on pregnant women with other disease states may help women today with Crohn's disease.
