This doctor's argument was that it's extremely common and that just as many people who have issues with pregnancies DON'T have issues even though they have it.

But I think he was talking about heterozygous because being homozygous is not as common. But yeah he was terrible and wouldn't even do the test. So glad I left his practice.
Yep I'm homozygous and my doctor still didn't plan to have me on anything but I am planning on starting a baby aspirin as soon as I get pregnant.

I took baby aspirin after my second loss and still ended up with a 3rd and 4th. The most important factor, from what I've read, is to load up on all kinds of extra methylated vitamins. Seeking health is a great brand for supplements for MTHFR. A few months before getting pregnant with my daughter I started with an extra 2000 mcg methylfolate, liposomal glutathione (which smelled horrendous lol), methylcobalamin, and I took a natural bloodthinner rather than baby aspirin because I read some scientific articles that actually linked it to miscarriages--they were probably talking about larger doses, the article didn't specify, but I thought taking a natural blood thinner was a better safe than sorry sort of deal. I took nattokinase.

Right now I'm on a glutathione pathway formula only (pill so much easier to handle than the liposomal glutathione blech) which has all the methylated b vitamins in one so I don't have to take a bunch of different ones. But I still take extra methylfolate (most important for conception).

Basically, I listened to all of this guy's recommendations:
http://mthfr.net/mthfr-c677t-mutatio...ol/2012/02/24/

I do believe it helped me.

ETA: this is the pathway formula pills that I take: https://www.drdaleswellnessstore.com...nt=19278305606

Definitely on the expensive side but what's important than our health and our baby's health right?

Hey ladies! I am glad I found this thread. It's been hard finding one that I felt "fit" what I have going on. After 2 years of TTC I got pregnant in June through IUI. I miscarried in August and had a D&C. We did genetic tissue testing, which showed a normal baby girl. So, my amazing RE ordered a ton of genetic testing and blood work. So far the only issue is I was borderline APA, which he feels doesn't need treatment at this time and my genetic test showed I am a carrier for primary hyteroxaluria Type 3, which is also not an issue unless my husband is a carrier, as well. He should have his genetic testing back early next week and we will go from there.

I STILL have not started AF after my D&C. I did not check ovulation or anything because we were not yet in the mood to really try. We definitely didn't prevent but I doubt that it happened on its own since it hasn't this whole stinking time. It has been 6 weeks since my D&C so I should be starting soon. My HCG was monitored it is went down to 0 a few weeks ago so I hope to be getting back on track soon.

I've read all the posts and I am praying and sending good vibes to you all!

Welcome jcleary! I'm so sorry for your loss and all you've been through. All losses are heartbreaking, but when you've been ttc for a long time it seems even harder. Good that your doctor is being proactive to see what could have caused it. I hope you get your AF and get back on track soon!

Sounds awesome! Never heard of those just looked it up. I would still take extra methylfolate though. You need more than a typical person. At least 1000mcg per day.

Hi welcome!! Genetic testing showed I was a carrier of spinal mustcular atrophy which made me very nervous at the time. Thankfully my husband wasn't a carrier so we're good. Hopefully your husband isn't a carrier, and odds are he isn't!

Maybe take a test to be sure? If not, then hopefully AF will show up soon .
