I am a male with AS on Enbrel and Methotrexate. My doctor has told me that in the event of trying for a family, I would only have to come off Methotrexate 3 month prior. Is this the case and would I be able to go on some alternative medication to hold back the AS until such time as my wife became pregnant? As you can imaging this is very important, my AS is pretty active and the combination seems to hold back the symptoms. What is the best thing to do?
It is correct that you have to stop methotrexate. Enbrel may be enough to control symptoms. Use of prednisone for the period could also be used to control symptoms.
