Yes: The majority of pts with inflamatory bowel disease can be well managed iwht medications and occasionally surgery for problems and complications. Actually irritable bow is much harder but may respond to probiotis as a first line treatment.

A 45-year-old member asked:

What should I know if I am pregnant and I have ibd?

Dr. David Fein
Specializes in Preventive Medicine
Continue your diet: Ibd, or "inflammatory bowel disease, " may have no effect on your pregnancy, may actually improve during your pregnancy, or, rarely, worsen during pregnancy. Check with your OB regarding the prescription medications you may be taking, but continue the fundamentals -- water, fiber, exercise, etc.
A 44-year-old member asked:

What is the best type of birth control?

The one you will use: The best type of birth control is one that you will consistently and comfortably use. You have to balance convenience (how easy is it to use), efficacy (how well it works), and our preferences. Ask for information on all types of birth control and keep an open mind about different forms.

Just not good choice: These products are a waste of your money, especially in pregnancy. Follow your ada diet and especially food choices with a low glycemic index like nonfat/nosugar yogurt and fruits and vegetables, nuts and legumes. And stay away from bread, rice, pasta, potatoes and cereal.

Can anybody tell me how well the rhythm method works as a birth control?

1 doctor answer6 doctors weighed in
Dr. Timothy Brown
Obstetrics and Gynecology 44 years experience
Not very reliable: Using the rhythm method effectively depends upon absolutely regular and predictable cycles (not common) and considerable self-discipline. Since your sexual desire or libido increases when you are most fertile and this is exactly the time you have to avoid with the rhythm method, it tends not to work out well.
