MTHFR...WTH is that?!?

Postby masons_momma » Tue Jun 21, 2011 9:06 am

:cry: So I just found out today that I am positive for homozygous MTHFR c677T! I have done a lil research and I know it affects how my blood clots or something but still pretty clueless. Just feeling a lil down because I already have a PCOS diagnosis and now this?!? Why can't I just be normal?!? Also got my 7dpo results...progesterone 11.4 Estradiol 91...Doc says that is ok but not great...anyone going through something similar or have any insight?
