I have 3 kids ages 9,7,5 and since 2011 I have had losses 16 weeks, 14weeks and 16 weeks. They have all been with my husband. I have tried baby aspirin,cod liver oil, b6, b12, folate, vit e,and nattokinase. My MFM said I didn't need lovenox even though my husband and I have a combined mthfr gene. All the testing came back fine for clotting and chromosome. I am at a loss of what our next step should be. Thanks, Charity

I do agree with your MFM that MTFHR is unilkely the issue here. More likely a new immune issue with you , maybe secondary to the pregnancies themselves, diet, environment, or genetic. I would be happy to discuss this with you , but there are solutions to these issues. Feel free to call my office and schedule a 10 minute free discussion about your case.
