    Default Any other MTHFR patients out there?

    My husband & I have been TTC for almost 2 years. We had 3 miscarriages last year. After the 3rd miscarriage, they did all the blood work & found out I was positive for the MTHFR factor. Apparently there are a couple different types of MTHFR, but I don't know exactly which one I have. But now I am 5W5D preggers & my doctor has me on progesterone & a low does aspirin everyday. I was just curious what all the MTHFR patients out there are doing? I want to keep my doctor honest & make sure I'm in good hands. I honestly don't want to go down the miscarriage path again. . . .

    I don't really know anything about that, although I have been on birth boards with other women who had to take aspirin and have progesterone. perhaps that was the reason. In any case, welcome, congrats, and I really hope this works for you!

    I don't have it either but have heard others talk about it that had it as well. I was thinking some women took extra folic acid as well as progesterone and aspirin. But I could be wrong. HH9M to you!

    I have the MTHR mutation, and I take a low dose aspirin, extra folic acid, a special prenatal that has a special form of folic acid (VitaMedMD Plus RX), vitamin B complex, and for the first 12 weeks, progesterone. I had 2 m/cs before I found out about my MTHR mutation, but this little guy I am preggo with now is doing great. Good luck!!!

    I am a fellow mutant!!!
    I have the same strain as Alissa...Homogyous.
    I am on extra folic, progesterone and fragmin shots...I am unfortunaltley allergic to aspirin otherwise I would have been put on that.
    I found out after 7 miscarriages and going private to find out what on earth was happening.
    Iam 5 weeks odd pregnant...and still hoping I am following in alissas footsteps.

    Good luck and congrats and welcome.
