In women of childbearing age, methotrexate is prescribed in many indications other than cancer, either chronically (psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, IBD, etc.) or occasionally (ectopic pregnancies). The time given to these patients to consider pregnancy is currently subject to great variability depending on the sources. Analysis of the available objective evidence suggests that it is not justified to unnecessarily lengthen this period, and that conceiving the menstrual cycle following stopping methotrexate is quite possible.
