    Please please please nobody take megafol !!

    we can NOT process folic ACID but need natural active FOLATE. We need to source our own supplements containing methyl folate or FOLONIC acid - both active forms of folate. Folic acid is synthetic and sadly added to many foods such as bread. For us it can be detrimental to our health.

    Yes what @Brisbane Pom said.... DO NOT take folic acid...

    And be aware I've not found a pre-natal vitamin that doesn't contain it.
    Be aware of added folic acid in foods too...

    I've been buying this pre-natal off iherb.com super easy and fast. You can also buy the folate too.

    Hello there! I'm new to posting - but have learned so much from posts over the years!

    I'm homozygous for the C mutuation of MTHFR.

    I've been seeing a nutritionist who has suggested taking the Thorne Research prenatal which I've found has improved my health generally eg skin and digestion better. I just turned 40 recently and am looking at ICSI with Primary IVF/Genea.

    We had our first naturally (when I was 32 and hubby was 28) but we have since been diagnosed as 'infertile'. We had a few rounds of ICSI in 2016 with one miscarriage at 10 weeks. Hubby has low sperm count and my AMH was low (though it has doubled in 2 years!?).

    I'm wondering whether any of you ladies have recommendations for IVF doctors who support dealing with MTHFR and women over 40 with their own eggs.

    Thanks very much!
