Hi, I am new to the forum! I am a 38 year old woman who has had Psoriatic arthritis since I was 31. I am normally on methotrexate and leflunomide. I have had the lefunomide wash our and stopped taking methotrexate 3 months ago to try for a baby. We are now at the stage where we can try but I am already flaring up and on steroids to temporarily try and control it. However I have been told I wont be able to stay on prednisone for long before I need to go back methotrexate.

Has anyone else been in this position? We really want to try for a while. Any tips on how else to control PSA while trying? Has anyone successfully come off medication and got pregnant?
