    Hi there,

    My understaning of this won't be as good as from the rheumatology nurse, but what I've read talks about an increased risk of birth defects. If there's any chance of a slip up you might want to check if any medication like the morning after pills are an option (I've got a feeling they can be used for about 3days after a pregnancy risk, but I don't know if they are ok with methotrexate.)

    hope that may help
