Most recent literature suggests there is absolutely no link between MTHFR and miscarriage, trouble conceiving, or poor pregnancy outcome. The defect in MTHFR can be bypassed by taking folic acid, which is in all prenatal vitamins.
Great question. There are 100s of options. I would just pick one that goes down easy and has lots of the ingredients listed in this post. The most important ingredient for early pregnancy is folic acid.
A lot of the choices in prenatal vitamins are like the choice is say.... toilet paper..... all will get the job done, some are just a little more "fancy" than others.
Since you have been trying to conceive over a year, it is time for you to ask for a referral to an infertility specialist. They can discuss ways to increase your chances of conceiving. Best of luck.View Thread
Time to see an REI doctor (Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility). They can review your blood work, etc. They may get a special x-ray called an HSG to make sure your tubes are open. Then they will discuss ways to increase your chances of conceiving.View Thread
If you continued to get negative tests then you most likely not pregnant. The most likely explanation is that you are not ovulating (or at least did not this month). Go talk to your OBGYN and they can do a test to see for certain if you aren't ovulating.View Thread
According to the American Congress of OBGYN, a woman should wait one month after an MMR before getting pregnant. And the same organization states that the Hep A and Hep B vaccines are safe in pregnancy and breastfeeding. The hepatitis series are usually given to those at higher risk of getting one of these infections. In the USA, the Hep B vaccine series is given more commonly. Some less developed countries have a much higher Hep A prevalence, and so if you travel abroad, you should get this too.View Thread
Like Dr. Walmer mentions above, there are 2 options.... getting the one remaining tube put back together or doing IVF. You will be best suited to see a specialist (infertility) to decide on which will be the most effective. My gut tells me that IVF will give you more bang for your buck. Tubal surgery where I am can cost anywhere from $7 to $15,000 because it is not covered by most insurance plans. IVF may get you better success rates with similar out of pocket expense.
But regardless, you should meet and speak with someone before making a major decision like that.View Thread
