@PING383 you should follow this thread..
Cuddlybear I plan to try for natural conception. I have no trouble falling pregnant though. I have trouble staying pregnant.
I am flying to Sydney tomorrow and will discuss with Prof M that is he okay with natural cycles so I can feed it back here if you like?
Well hello there ladies
I never thought I would be joining this thread. After 1 silent miscarriage at 8 weeks i thought i would see Dr M just in case and didnt think I would get any new things to put on my long list of medical conditions. Oh how wrong I was about that hope.
So today I got results that I have the MTHFR gene mutuation..I'm not surprised about that after doing some research this evening as I have spina bifida and I guess i inherited the mutation from my mum. I also have high NK Cells.
So Dr M has put me on Clexane and Prednisone.
My question to you lovely ladies is what side effects did you get while on these meds?????
As mentioned I already have Spina Bifida and scoliosis (it says to inform your doc or pharmacist if you have a spinal deformity and plan on taking clexane but Dr M never mentioned this)
I also have anxiety and a heart condition called Ventricular Tacchychardia and I read Prednisone can cause anxiety etc but also fast, irregular heartbeat and pulse sooooo don't know what to do. Will be calling my cardiologist to discuss.
Thanks for any stories or advice about side effects girls
I really don't understand this NK stuff. Ive looked at my results and they really dont seem high or elevated.
Cd 19- 13%
Cd 3- 75%
Cd3-/cd16+cd56+ nk cells-12%
Cd3-/cd16+nk cells- 11%
Cd3-/cd56+nk cells- 10%
Hi luv, def book in with Dr M, keep trying his office - they are old school and hard to get into.
I also have an mthfr mutation. Are you taking the methylated form of folic acid - there's some good websites on mthfr and pregnancy, totally worth looking at as you are homo for that mutation (one inherited from both parents so can reduce your methylation.
I don't know much about ANA. You also mentioned thyroid antibodies. yes you must get this addressed and it can be addressed! Naturopath who specializes in hormonal (endocrine) system should be able to help. I'm assuming you know TSH and rT3 etc... Where abouts do you live? I don't have a great naturopath although I've seen a few. I've got a recommendation for another I will see soon.
I have mthfr and now pregnant.
I changed from commerical pregnancy supplement to very basic
500 of folate
Which is what is reccomended.. fell pregnant 3 months after switching
I dont know if it made any difference at all
Doctor M also suggested this combo
Mthfr support australia i thought were twats just from an email to dicuss a consult lol
I brought solgar folate from iherb
I believe 500mg is the max you should take
400-500mg is ideal you body will excrete what it doesnt need but it also doesnt like to much.
I just took over the counter aussie brands of b6 and b12.
Ill take photos of my bottles
I moved back to a commerical pregnancy vitmain at 11weeks (blackmores)
On dr m reccomendtion i am now 33 weeks and still jist on asprin due to mthfr will ween off at 36 weeks gestation
