Hi Ladies,

Im 38 and after 2 early miscarriages over the last year my GP suggested I get a private genetic testing done. I had to go private as NHS refuses to do further tests unless I have 3 miscarriages.

After the genetic testing, I was diagnosed with MTHFR homozygous, a gene mutation that could be a cause of blood clotting in pregnancy.

I am now 8 weeks pregnant again have been prescribed Fragmin injections daily. Have also been advised to take Active Folate supplements (instead of folic acid) and bump up on the Vitamin B.

Have anyone else here been diagnosed with MTHFR, and had a successful pregnancy? If so, did you do anything extra prenatal care wise? tia
