Methadrexate injection

Postby treezuk » Wed Oct 08, 2014 5:30 am

So on 20th June 2014 I had the methadrexate injection to end my ectopic pregnancy (6w5d) which finally become negative on the 1st august 2014.

Since then I've had problems with my periods having AF roughly every 20 or so days and then today day 9 of a new cycle really intense cramps and a bit of spotting again which is not usual for me once AF is done it's genrally done I do have a small dermoid cyst on my remaining ovary but I don't think it's that :/

Also since the injection I've been battling a virus/cold sorta thing that just will not go I was told that the methadrexate can suppress your immune system and up until recently I couldn't take any vitamins because of the folic acid mixing with the injection so I dunno if it's all connected or not.

Has anyone else experienced this after the injection any advice would be appreciated.

Hi Teresa I haven't had the meth injection so I can't relate but I have noticed my periods are a disaster since my losses. My ectopic pregnancy was surgically removed with my tube so I wasn't given an option of injection but I know lots that have had the injection.. Perhaps your immune issues are due to the injection but also not being on your multivitamins. I hope things settle for you soon!

Thank you for your reply sept , I had a good chat with my dr today he thinks the injection probably has affected my periods and the pain I'm having in my side could be a number of things but as I have a fertility appontment coming up he said to wait unless it gets unbearable then go in , and he thinks I have a virus but his sending me for full bloods and a chest X-ray to be sure so least there looking after me , I'm sorry to hear of your losses xxx
