I am your patient already and we are waiting for the results from immunology panel testing.
I had tested for vitamin D back in 2012 and the levels came VERY low. My doctor then told me it had not much to do with infertility. After reading about some researches, I am taking 1000 units of Vitamin D3 on my own for past 2 months. While waiting for immune test result, do you think I should get tested for levels of vitamin D3 also?
I am posting this question on the forum so that other readers can avail the information.

you can certianly take 4000units of Vit D and yes then I would follow the Vit D level. You are correct that it plays a very important role in reducitng inflammatory profiles that can interfere witn generating immune tolerance toward the preganncy.
