i have it too. I take extra folic acid (2 mg /day) super B supplement, added extra B6 now that i'm pregs, regular vits with Bs a baby aspirin and pretty soon i'll have to start shots. I saw a hematologist last December and finally got the broader picture of what i need to do to ensure the rest of my life is healthy. Most docs really dont know very much so a hematologist is your best bet for well round care of your MTHFR
The OB told me I had it and he's going to get in touch with the Peri to find out what to do other than 1mg folic acid twice a day. I will ask to see a Hemotologist. I have Hetero he didn't say if it was compound but I have one mutation in two genes. I'm having no luck researching it in layman terms.
I don't know what that is...but am happy they figured it out! Sounds like it isn't too bad to manage if folic is the answer.

On 1/31/12 at exactly 16 weeks pregnant Noah came too soon. He was our 7th loss
If you would like to see pictures of my sweet (but tiny) boy they can be viewed at www.caringbridge.org/visit/noahdarrohn they aren't the easiest pictures to look at but I am willing to share them with anyone who would like to see them <3
You must be so relieved to finally have some answers and be starting on a plan for addressing it. You might also ask around at some other boards TTC w/medical assistance or something like that (if you haven't already). Sometimes I find that I get way more info from others on here than I do from the internet or even my doc. Good luck.
