@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
Hello everyone! I've been doing IVF now for 6 months. My FS did some tests, which I only just came across because I requested a copy of my file.
I am homo (a1298c) MTHFR.
I found out today have:
1. anti-nuclear antibodies (ANA) with a speckled pattern 1:80 titre; and
2. I have 50 u/ml of anti-thyroglobulin Abs (Immulite), normal is <41.
I don't really have any symptoms, but my embryos don't seem to be getting me a BFP.
I'm not sure whether you were all tested for these things first before they went on to do the NK cell test? Please let me know. I tried to ring Prof M today, but got an answering machine.
My FS doesn't think there's anything wrong with me and she doesn't believe in NK cells.
Savasana, what were your ANA and thyroid autoantibody readings? My ANA was 1:80 speckled and my thyroid antibodies were 50. Can a blood test confirm the existence of NKC?
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.
