What happens if I, or my partner get pregnant whilst taking disease-modifying treatments?

Some DMARDs are known to be potentially harmful to an unborn child and it is important to notify our staff immediately if you or your partner become pregnant whilst either of you is on treatment. We will advise you if it is safe to continue with treatment or discuss possible alternatives.
