A member asked:

I had methotrexate 5 weeks ago for an ectopic pregnancy. methotrexate reduces the folate level in your body so when does the folate level return normal after the methotrexate shot?

A single dose of methotrexate has no effect on folate levels. People who need to take methotrexate on an ongoing basis should also take folate supplements, but it isn't necessary after single doses or short treatment periods.
