My Life - PCOS, Multiple Miscarriages, Rare Diseases
Hello my name is Feleshia I am 24 yrs old.
I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2006 when my PCP told me I had it.
I was told that I would never be able to have children. Me and my husband have been trying unsuccessfully now for over 5 yrs to become pregnant since I was 17 I have had 7 miscarriages.
I am wondering if there is a solution for what I am going through.
I would love nothing more to be a mother!!!
I also 2 blood clot disorders. I have MTHFR and Factor 5 Lieden.
If there is any information you can give me it will be greatly appreciated!!!!!
Editor's comments: Hi Feleshia.
I have no idea how to help you with this. This is way off the topic of PCOS.
MTHFR is a disorder that is far beyond our capabilities to adequately discuss.
Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) is a rare genetic defect that can lead to complications in pregnancy. Even if you carry to term, there is an increased risk of Down Syndrome or congenital malformations.
One of the characteristics of MTHFR is homocysteine at levels in the blood that are too high. Another characteristic is difficulty in metabolizing folic acid, which is a B vitamin.
You might consult with a health professional about taking super-high doses of folic acid or tetrahydrofolic acid. I wonder if some of the other B vitamins, including possibly B12 injections, might also be help to some limited degree to reduce homocysteine.
By the way, excessively high levels of homocysteine can lead to pregnancy complications.
I also have no knowledge whatsoever of Factor V Leiden. This is a common inherited genetic disorder that can increase your chance of developing abnormal blood clots (thrombophilia), usually in your veins.
Most people with factor V Leiden never develop abnormal clots. However, some people with factor V Leiden develop clots that lead to long-term health problems or become life-threatening.
Both men and women can have factor V Leiden, but women may have an increased tendency to develop blood clots during pregnancy or when taking the hormone estrogen.
A natural blood thinner is fish oil. However, do NOT take fish oil without first consulting with your physician.
The above are just some speculative thoughts. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful.
