Period after Methotrexate

Postby Alynflores » Tue Feb 11, 2020 5:35 pm

Hi, I had my last shot of methotrexate on Nov. 4, 2019 at a 1,700mUI and last Jan 7 I did a blood test resulting of 20 mUI but until now I haven't get my period yet, its been 3 months. Any ideas about my condition please ? :cry: :cry:

Dear Alynflores,
I am so sorry to hear of your ectopic pregnancy and loss,
Your periods can take a while to re-establish and they can re-start once hCG levels have fallen below about 100mIU/mL and most women find that their period arrives some time in the four weeks after their hCG levels have fallen to 0 if treated with Methotrexate. As it has been over this time now, I would advise speaking to your Dr. It maybe that it is just a little more time needed but it may reassure you speaking to a medical professional.

Sending much love,
Karen x

Thank you for response ... May I ask if the negative result of pregnancy test means my hCG has already fallen ?
