I have come across information regarding IVF failure and miscarriage and wanted to share
I have been doing a lot of research trying to determine why some women miscarry after IVF. I came across several articles that spoke about homocysteine levels. Basically what I found out is that if your homocysteine levels are high they can cause a host of problems and one being a failed IVF cycle or cause you to miscarry.
I went to my RE and asked if I could have my homocysteine levels tested and was told no. He stated that there was no reason to test. I reached out to my primary care physician to test my homocysteine levels and he wanted to know why. When I explained my reasons I was told no because homocysteine levels is not considered a routine test for fertility related issues.
I began to research high homocysteine level symptoms and I fit the bill. I researched supplements that I could take on my own to lower homocysteine levels.I have suffered from 2 miscarriages in the past both from fresh IVF cycles. I came to the conclusion that you must take these supplements to lower homocysteine levels.
*****Highly recommend Allergy Research Group vitamin called Homocysteine it has all of the vitamins in it with the exception of zinc. I absolutely love Jarrow formulas vitamins and have also purchased a bottle of TMG and B-Right vitamins. I take these vitamins everyday and to prepare for my up and coming IVF cycle.
****Also high homocysteine levels can cause auto-immune issues.
Most Dr's only advise folic acid supplementation however you need a combination of these vitamins to truly combat high homocystein levels.
