No: Methotrexate (MTX), when dosed for autoimmune conditions, (10-25 mg weekly), should not delay your period. Sometimes acute or chronic illness can. If your autoimmune condition that MTX is being used for is active for example, that can delay your period. I would check with your gynecologist first, and make sure that you are not pregnant.
