I am homozygous MTHFR A1298C, and have had 3 miscarriages. I've recently undergone an IUI cycle with no success. We are going to try IVF next, but I want to know if there is anything else that I need to be tested for, anything else I need to be doing, etc. before we undergo this procedure. I am taking a baby aspirin a day and have been for several months. I am 33 years old and this is the only red flag that has appeared in the testing I've undergone except for endometriosis. My husband has no infertility factors.
your doctor should have run all the tests already if you are starting treatments - but you should check to make sure everything has been done. Did they test your homocysteine levels after finding out your MTHFR mutation? If the homocysteine levels are fine, then baby aspirin should be enough of a precaution but maybe a little extra folic acid too. If your homocysteine levels are not good, you may need to look into more treatments before trying again. Are you going to an RE?
