Â Â Â Many people with Crohnâ€™s are women of childbearing age. It used to be that these women were warned that pregnancy could make the disease much worse, and some avoided having children. But now, newer medications mean that many women with Crohnâ€™s donâ€™t need to fear pregnancy for themselves or for their babies.
Â Â Â You might wonder if a woman can pass Crohnâ€™s Disease on to her child, and it's not likely. Only about 15% of all people with Crohnâ€™s have a parent who has it too.
