Seriously?! I guess better late than never...

So my results came back from the 13 vials of blood I recently gave...everything is normal but one thing. Since I have had 2 failed IVF's and one was a cp he did some tests they typically give to women who have reoccuring mc. Turns out that I am one of 30% of women who do not absorb folic acid. They are calling in a script for me for folic acid and I have to take 5 times the normal amount just to get the recommened amount in my system.

:eek:

Maybe this has been part of what is affecting my fertility or lack thereof...

Glad you got your results back. This is a case of where you want something to be wrong so you can treat it. At least it is something treatable. Crazy how something as silly as a simple blood test could possibly be your answer. I hope the increased folic acid means a pregnancy in your future.

Exactly this! I hope that this extra dose of F.A. is exactly what you need. I'm glad the new RE ran this panel of tests too.

Same here. How frustrating! But I'm hoping that this new RE and is going to be just what you need for your BFP! xo
