I just had my first shot of Metho 2 days ago. I haven't had any bad reaction yet. Like you I am still young, and I want to have children, I told my GI this and he said thats fine but I absolutely CANNOT get pregnant on this drug, and that I need to get on another form of birth control other then condoms as soon as possible. He said when the time comes that I want to have a baby I can discontinue the Metho (under his supervison) and after having the baby I can start back up on it. He's also putting me on Cimzia, I'm not sure exactly why hes putting me on both at once I didn't have much time to talk with him because I was given these meds while I was admitted to the hospital the other day by one of his partners I'll have to talk with him more about
it at my appointment this week.
