Mmm? Let's C.: If you have had a molar pregnancy, the use of Methotrexate is for what condition. Obviously a molar pregnacy is virtually non-viable and occurs in 1/1000 pregnancies. If you are on methotrexate, you cannot get prenant, because mtx is an abortifacient. Mtx metabolites stay in your sytem for up to 2 & 1/2 months. It should not cause complications, if you are justified in taking it.Do nnot try!

The major toxicity is direceted at the liver, skin, GI tract and bone marrow cells.

Failed pregnancy: It is a misformed conception and damaged baby. Does not bode well for having a baby.

No: Methotrexate causes the abnormal molar pregnancy cells to stop growing. It will not affect fertility. It is important to avoid getting pregnant while taking the medication and for a few months after therapy is completed. Your doctor should give you details.
