I am on methotrexate right now and my physician warned me to make sure that I don't get pregnant while taking this med. He also told me that you need to not get pregnant 6 months afterwards. He said that the med. would still be in your body and it could cause harm to the baby.
I am still having bad heartburn and nausea with the med. I know that it is a form of chemo. but I thought it would pass by now. I have also begun losing some hair. I had my 4th treatment Saturday and I have to take it for 4-6 months depending I guess how well it's working.
I think that you should get all the info you can and tell the doctor about your concerns.
