Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

It is safe to be pregnant in the setting of a history of ulcerative colitis, but the steroids and hydrochlorothiazide should be avoided during pregnancy. Given that you are not pregnant yet, you absolutely need a pre-conception visit with a high-risk OB or a GI specialist to discuss the proper medications to be on before you get pregnant.

I hope that this helps. If you have more questions, please click on "ASK ME A QUESTION" link above to directly ask me a question!
