when did you get off the methotrexate?
injection or pills?
I'm looking for the half life.
we do use methotrexate to stop pregnancies in the event of early tubal pregnancies.
and we know it can cause problems, thus, is category x..
what I need to find is the half life to see if 2 weeks is long enough.
and bear in mind....even category x does not mean that exposure will cause problems all the time...
just that we know exposure can cause problems.
give me a sec.
the literature suggests at least 4 weeks after treatment for a woman
and 3 months if the male was treated.
so, there is a chance of miscarriage and/or birth defects unfortunately.
this is NOT an absolute...but, something you need to bring to the attention of your doctor.
that way you can receive early ultrasounds, possibly an amnioscentesis to ensure everything is ok.
you're welcome...I know it's not the best news
but my honest medical opinion.
