In brief: Yes

Many patients with uc become pregnant with little difficulty, and have an uneventful pregnancy and delivery.
Patients who have had abdominal or pelvic surgery do have a lower rate of fertility, but fertility specialists can help. Discuss the options of vaginal delivery vs. C-section with your doctors, especially if you have or are a candidate for a pelvic pouch surgery for your uc.
