does anyone have any experiences with methotrexate causing irregular bleeding? I have been injecting 3ccs/week subcutaneously for 2 1/2 months. this time, my period (I'm assuming that's what it is) has been off and on for about 3 weeks. just spotty most of the time, but definitely bleeding a little every day. i also take birth control, i don't know if that affects anything either...

other meds besides the mtx: pred (5 mg), plaq (400 mg), folic acid, pentoxifylline, lexapro

is this something to call my rheumy about? or my gyno? or my primary care? so many doctors, ahhhh

My cycles haven't been completely regular in the two years I have been on MTX. Before that they were always regular.

just irregular, or does it come more often since you've been on the mtx?

I've been on and off MTX and that has been known to cause me to have two cycles per month.
