Frequently Asked Questions

Are Crohn's disease symptoms different in males and females?

Women and men are just as likely to get the condition, but it affects a woman’s life in different ways, specifically when it comes to periods, pregnancy and menopause. For example, a woman may experience symptom flare-ups in the weeks leading up to her periods. They should also aim to plan pregnancy around times where they are in remission.
