Hi everyone,
I would really appreciate your opinions, I have been on 10mg oral methotrexate for 21mths now and recently stopped against my doctors advice. My husband and i both long for a family and i feel well in myself so stopped taking them. I have read various articles on the web and the information leaflet included with the med and they all state different waiting times before trying to concieve. they all vary between 1 monthly cycle, 3 months and 6 months. and i'm really confused!!! anyone else been in the same situation i'd really value your response.

I have never taken it, but I would definitely wait the longest time (6 months) that you have read. You don't want to mess around with methtrexate when you are talking about conceiving.

I have to agree with chroniemomx2. I just started on methotrexate a month ago so I'm really new to it. But if it were me, I would definitely wait at least 6 months before trying. You want it out of your system!

You should definitely ask a pharmacist and/or doctor.
