TTC - Trying to Conceive TTC - Trying to Conceive

Methotrexate

I received a methotrexate shot February 3 for an ectopic pregnancy. RE said to wait at least 1 month before we TTC again BUT I've read that 2-3 months is recommended by most doctors.

For those that have received the shot, how long were you told to wait?

My doctor suggested 2 cycles before ttc. I had it in Nov. and my cycles went crazy :( We just started ttc again. I've also read its best to wait 2 months but I've read women getting pregnant a month after. I'm not sure. Good luck!

I have feeling "crazy" is where my cycle is headed. It took 36 days to get a negative HCG. :(

I was 6w2d when I started bleeding(we knew about the BFP early because we conceived thru IUI) dr did ultrasound day after first bleeding and said there was nothing in my uterus. Then at what would've been 8weeks we found out it was ectopic.

Make sure you add lots of folic acid to your diet. It depletes it from your body and it is imperative for a healthy pregnancy!!
