Stopping Prevalite While Pregnant

Hi All,

I have Crohn’s in my small bowel and had my terminal ileum resected a few years ago. Ever since, I’ve been on Prevalite (along with my other Crohn’s meds) to help control diarrhea caused by excess bile salts. My husband and I want to TTC soon. My GI just told me that I will have to stop taking the Prevalite while pregnant. I’m worried about having bad diarrhea my whole pregnancy. Has anyone gone through this? How did you cope?

Thank you!
