What Is The Effect Of Methotrexate On Men?

Dear Midwife,
I've read some of your articles on women who take methotrexate and are wanting to start a family, but unfortunately none of the answers provided can answer my question.

My partner takes methotrexate on a weekly basis for his Psoriatic Arthritis and we want to plan for a family, however we are aware that he needs to come off this drug for at least 6 months. My concern is that he will not be able to handle not taking the drug for that length of time. Is there anything else he can take instead, (within those 6 months)?
