Does Crohns make conceiving harder?

Hi,

I'm currently trying IVF. I've been TTC for 6 years in between surgeries. Have had 2 failed rounds of ivf , one this week. I do have fertility issues, but wondered if Crohns makes conceiving even harder?

Thanks xx

Active disease and past surgeries (certain ones) can affect your fertility. Hope the link above helps and good luck.

Jennifer, thanks very much that helped out my mind at rest. I'm very lucky that after 2-3 yrs of hell I'm in the best health I've been for along time. Im stressing a bit less now thinking about my third round of IVF. Thanks again xxx
