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!
