Abstract Contrary to common belief, some medications to treat rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are safe to use during the preconception period, pregnancy and breastfeeding. As uncontrolled RA is associated with subfertility and poor outcomes for both mother and baby, management should be individualised, balancing risks of active disease against any medication-related risks.
