There is much debate and dispute within the medical community regarding MTHFR and it's relationship to pregnancy loss or Recurrent Pregnancy Loss (RPL).

Information

I am 33 years old. I have two children 13 and 8. I did have 2 miscarriages in between the two live births. I was just diagnosed with MTHFR this week, and I want more information. I go see a hematologist next friday, and I have been searching every website availabe until then. I still dont understand this fully. How did they just find this now? How have I lived 33 years with no symptoms until now? I have seen 3 doctors, and all 3 have told me different things. One said its no big deal just take an asprin a day, and folic acid supplement, and in a few years start on coumadin. The other said the same thing. They were both OB docs. My FP doc is sending me to a hematologist, he thinks it is more serious. Needles to say I am scared to death. Any input or info, I need it. My husband and I were trying to have another child, last one of course, but now I am scared to death to even try.
