I have always been told that I need to be off the Methotrexate for 6 months before trying to conceive so when my Nurse Practitioner told me of a test to check the levels of Methotrexate in my blood I could have leapt for joy (if only the RA wasn't pinning me firmly to the floor!). I had to be at the hospital today so I dropped in the clinic and asked for the paperwork. The nurse went off to organise it and came back and said that she had misunderstood the test and it was only possible to test the Methotrexate levels if someone had overdosed. Any traces left in me wouldn't show up. *Huge disappointment* until she said if I've been off it 3 months the doctor she spoke to said that it would be okay to start trying to conceive! *Huge grin and floated on Cloud 9 out of the clinic!*
Ironically I am one day out on my cycle after ovulation to try this month...but the immense thought that the Methotrexate is out of my system is so freeing.
