Just a quick message. I had been taking Leflumonide for 6 months and accidentally became pregnant. The consultants at my rheumatologist is a old man and is very old fashioned and basically told me to have a miscarriage. I couldn't bring myself to do this as I was 11 weeks 2 days (they gave me a scan) and felt he/she now looked like a real baby I had the washout treatment straight away, so after weeks and weeks of agonising and stressing if I could of caused any harm to my baby I have just had my 20 week anomaly scan and have a lively perfect baby boy. Hope this is a little reassurance for anyone that finds there self in my position.
