Azil, I would look into Hughes syndrome in your particular case, it is pretty probable you might have that and not MS.
So sorry to hear of your miscarriages, heartbreaking x

Congratulations on your twin boys!!!!

Do you take blood thinners?

Oh no this info has just sent me into stress mode... I am looking into fertility drugs at the moment to help with ovulation. No wonder my Neuro looked at me funny and said "no no no" lets just let time decide...

I am devistated :( all I have ever wanted in life is to be a mum. My recent attack was so servere that I would never want to risk another and like another said what's the point being a mum if your so unwell that you can't look after your baby.

What do you think would it be worth the risk? Is there oral fertility and is that different to IVF? My GP said it dosent seem that I will need IVF but I'm all new to this... So glad and sad that I saw this post xx
Love is all you need.... xx

I wouldn't go into panic mode just yet. I had fertility treatment with my son and although that was when my symptoms first started it may have been a coincident. When I saw my specialist and mentioned having another baby he told me not to wait and bring it forward if I could (my baby is 6 months so they will be close together if I decide to have another baby). I mentioned I had fertility treatment to get pregnant and he wasn't concerned. Now that I have found out this information I am going to ask him about it when I see him on the 26th.
I didn't do IVF, I took clomid to help me ovulate. I don't know if this article is talking about all forms of fertility treatment or just IVF. Stressing about this wont help your situation. Just because you're not ovulating now doesn't mean it can't just happen. My fertility specialist told me that it just takes one time and you could fall pregnant. So it is important not to stress.

leeya, ever had your zinc level done? it's critical for fertility. i got someone i knew to take it after 1.5 yrs trying and no success. once she had it in the regimen she was pregnant in 6 weeks. before i got into all this i knew a couple who spent tens of thousands on ivf and finally went to a naturopath. mom was pregnant in no time.
odd sx? no dx? check w/ dietitian
99% don't meet these. meds/lifestyle can affect levels
status can be low in ms & other cond'ns
'but my results are normal'. typical panels don't test all
deficits occur in 'normal' range
