Hi there,

I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and was put on Mehtotrexat. I found out that I was pregnant after the 4th week that I was on Methotrexat. I immediately stopped with the medication and went to see the Rheumatiod Specialist. She said that she wasn' t too worried about the medication as I wasn' t on it for too long and that the dosage was very low (10mg per week). I have also gone to the Gyni who says that we should think about termination???? I was in shock and didn' t ask all the questions that I would have like to asked. I want a second opionion.
What is the cons in this situation.

I am now 5 weeks pregnant.

I am looking forward to your reply.

Thanking You
