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

other meds: pred (5 mg), plaq (400 mg), folic acid, nifedipine, pentoxifylline, lexapro

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

Hey Kimber . . . If no one here knows . . . you might make the same post in the Rheumatoid Arthritis forum and the Crohn's forum. Lots of them use Mtx too.
