Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Crohns disease may flare up with pregnancy but good thing is that you are on remicade which is safe in pregnancy so yes you can conceive and stay compliant with remicade. Wont be a problem.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
