Not from the shot!!! Maybe a tear!
Hi and thank you so much for this query.
I am so sorry to hear about this spotting and menstrual changes that you have reported. I understand how embarrassing and troubling this can be. I do hope together we find out what the problem is and propose a permanent solution to it.
This is in to way related to the methotrexate
shot. It is most likely a coincidence than a cause of this. Spotting has several different causes in women. It could have been cause by a tear after the intercourse and more so if you think there were any reasons to suggest so.
There are some with no identifiable cause and represent no danger to the life of the individual. The first thing to do would be to get consulted by your OBGYN
. S/he would examine you fully paying particular attention to the vagina and the cervix
not forgetting the uterus
to look for any possible cause of these symptoms. Depending on the findings of this encounter, further tests like laboratory and imaging studies may be required to help pinpoint the diagnosis. It is only after establishing the exact cause of this problem that targeted solutions and treatment plans would be established to help you address this.
In all, it is unlikely to be caused by methotrexate injection.A vaginal tear is possible. A good examination and possible additional test would identify the exact problem and propose solutions for this.
I hope this helps. I wish you well.
