Pregnancy with UC
Hi, I am pregnant currently in 27th week. I have multiple health issues, i am having Ulcerative colitis and Reactive arthritis too. My doctor prescribed me to take ecosprin 75 mg since i was 3 month pregnant. Since last week my Ulcerative colitis flared up and my gastro suspected it might be due to ecospirin. I am already in 7th month so can i discontinue ecosprin? as i feel better in my UC after discontinuing it for 2 days. Are there any side effects of suddenly discontinuing ecosprin?

The UC is unlikely to be affected by the low dose of Ecosprin that is usually used in pregnancy, to maintain good placental function, and help baby to grow normally. It is given to reduce the possibility of having a growth restricted baby. But if it is causing problems, you can discontinue it, as it is more of a preventive medicine rather than a curative one. You also need serial ultrasound scans to check if baby is growing normally, in view of your medical ptoblems.
