In brief: 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.

In brief: Molar pregnancy

Methotrexate only rarely causes fertility issues.
The fertility issues are probably more associated with the age of your eggs.
