Answer

According to the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare Clinical Effectiveness Unit in the United Kingdom, women with IBD should plan for conception when their disease is stable and well controlled. [108] Male and female patients require prepregnancy counseling to help them with the best management of their condition before conception occurs. [108]
