    Question MTHFR C667T - Newbie

    Hello everyone,
    I'm new to this forum. I found it after discovering, by accident that I am positive heterozygous for the MTHFR C677T mutation.

    After losing a little boy at 20 weeks last November, I decided to go and get some blood work done privately. I was informed by my consultant that I had Activated Protien C resistance and on the two pregnancies that followed I took baby aspirin and injected Heparin. I lost both babies.

    Recently, I asked my consultant for a full copy of my tests and discovered that in addition to Activated protien C resistance I also have the above MTHFR gene mutation, so I'm not to happy with the service I received

    Anyway, I had quick look at some of posts but feel a little confused. Does this mutation have to be dealt with during pregnancy or is it only the compound forms. If it is dealt with in pregnancy what is given. And more importantly have there been any sucesses on this forum.

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Yazza,

    I'm sorry no one responded to you sooner. It may be because the info your looking for is already posted elsewhere on this site. I am no doctor, but I would suggest you be medicated with shots of blood thinner the next time you get pg. Losing a pg at 20 weeks should confirm that for you. I have heard of women who, like you, only have one gene mutation, and who carry to term without intervention, but I have heard of many more who lose the pg or who have blood clots (and some even strokes) because they were not medicated. I would not take the chance. In the meantime, please review the older posts on this matter. You should be on baby aspirin and 1 Folgard tab each day now and for the rest of your life.

    Ruth
