Dear XXXXXXX

Relax, let me tackle one query at a time.

Is it mean for ladies who are pregnant or is it effect my sperm and the upcoming baby if my wife conceive
=== Yes, the sentence not to be used during pregnancy and lactation is meant for only ladies.

If there is complications to the baby if mother age 39?
---No complications per se, but the risk of chromosomal anomalies like Down Syndrome are high with high maternal age. To be sure, you may get some triple screening tests done to confirm any such anomaly.

For your mother:
Rheumatoid arthritis is best managed by Rheumatologist. surgery may be a therapy in only select cases when hands are deformed. Medicines are available in various groups and various dosages for long term control. Newer methods that give good joint mobility may be tried by your doc. Please discuss with your doctor regarding use of Infliximab and etanercept. They are very costly.

Please get back to me if any further queries.
