Methotrexate for miscarriage

Hello~ I was informed last week that I have a failed pregnancy. Since my husband and I have been ttc for about 4 years he wanted to help us get through this miscarriage faster so we can start trying again. He suggested Methotrexate. I was just wondering if anyone else here has taken this? I have never had a miscarriage and am just nervous and scared I guess. I would also like to know how long it took you to conceive after the taking the shot? Any information would be great...what it feels like, kind of complications if any you had, etc. Thanks

I had Methotrexate in June for an ectopic pregnancy.   It was a single injection and they monitored my HCG -- for an ectopic pregnancy it has to go down a certain percentage and if it doesn't you have to have a second injection.  I am not sure if it would be the same with you or not since you are having a miscarriage.  I can tell you that with methotrexate I was advised not to take any vitamins especially folic acid b/c it does the opposite effect of the methotrexate as Folic Acid promotes cell development.  You may want to talk to your doctor about if he wants you to build your folic acid back up after the Methotrexate before trying.  Also I had a natural m/c earlier this year and had bleeding for about 2-3 weeks.  After the Methotrexate for the ectopic pregnancy I had bleeding for 6 weeks.  Again, my experience with Methotrexate may be different due to the ectopic pregnancy.  Also you are not to take Ibuprofen after the Methotrexate and it gave me killer headaches and all I could take was Tylenol which does not work for me.  Another side effect if abdominal pain/cramping as the Methotrexate works.  I would just ask your doctor a lot of questions first.

my husband and i have been trying to concieve (conceive) for 2 years we finally did in July of this year and i misscarried in August. I had a D&C first since the dr had me on progesterone(i had to take Chlomid to help me get pregnant) so he said i can try and pass naturally but since i was on the progesterone it may take a while for that to actually happen i opted for the D&C since it was devistating news anyway i could not sit around and wait for it to pass on its own. Had the D&C on Aug 29th and after that he began to monitor my hcG levels on a weekly basis since it was still up come October we did a Methotrexate shot and i had what was like a normal period to me a week later. We contiued to moniter by levels each week and it was going down. It got down to about 17 in November (begining of Nov.) and then went back up to 27. i had to have an ultrasoud done to make sure there was no moler pregnancy or ectopic. there wasnt it just showed more retained product that had reattached to my uterus and began to produce hcg again (the preg. hormone) just had my third Methotrexate shot today 11/19/12 still trying to get it down. My case is a little abnormal for what reason we dont know... anyway hang in there it is a day to day process and you will have emotional ups and downs. i was also told to wait about 2-3 cycles before start taking my chlomid again so we can start trying again.
