Did you get pregnant after taking methotrexate?

I was on methotrexate for an autoimmune disease for 2 years. I stopped taking it in September and we want to have another baby. Has ANYONE gotten pregnant after this type of situation? Was the baby healthy? How long did you wait. There is like NO information out there on this!

  • I know this won't help much as the situation is different but I was given 2 shots of methotrexate to treat an ectopic pregnancy in June of 2008. I was told to wait 4 months (I believe this was so the pregnancy could completely resolve itself) before trying again. I got pregnant in December and am now the proud mommy of a happy, healthy 3 month old!
