Young women with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) pose a unique set of challenges. These women and their treating physicians must make difficult choices in matters regarding conception, pregnancy, and breastfeeding. This review highlights recent evidence and management issues that arise when taking care of women with IBD in terms of fertility, outcomes, and medication safety in pregnancy and breastfeeding. Ultimately, treatment must be individualized for each patient based on the available evidence and the woman's preferences.
