Hi all, first post, be kind!
I've been diagnosed with RA approx a year ago, and have been on MTX for 9 months now. My question is, how long do people stay on MTX for? I'm 31, the pain and inflammation stopped almost immediately after starting MTX (7.5mg at first, now on 15mg with some irregularities in the blood test halting further progression). My RA specialist is two hours away and i see him again in six months and ALWAYS forget to ask any questions I have!
The main reason I ask is you can't conceive whilst on MTX (apparently this is mainly for females, but also suggested for males too) and I'm not getting any younger and would like another child.
Any help/reassurance/banter will be welcomed, I'm currently in the Armed Forces and will most likely be getting kicked out due to RA too, but I was going to quit anyway so win-win.
