Subject: advice please

Hello hope you are having a good weekend everyone.

just some advice has I've been on methotrexate since September and plaquenil since November and seen no improvement.
i am seeing my rheumy on the 8Th Feb and i have decided to come off mtx due to wanting a baby.
i know i need to be off it for 6 months before i conceive but is there anything else i can take til the time i can start trying? like a biological?

i will ask to stay on plaquenil and give it a bit longer to work and stay on the prednisolone steroids.

is there anyone that has had a baby with having arthritis?

I have had 2 whilst having ra had to stop everything was quite worried at first but hormones kicked in and needed nothing whilst pregnant no aches etc. However had a flare up at 3 months after both. I took sulphersalazine and nsai up until i found out i was preggie. Dont forget to build up your folic acid as some meds knock it out of your system xx good luck
