The Methylenetetrahydrofolate Reductase (MTHFR) gene mutation is a very common gene defect that affects about 25% of people and is an extremely common documented cause of unexplained infertility.  In this class, we elucidate the folate pathway and how the MTHFR gene mutation affects folate metabolism and fertility (in both men and women).  We dispel some of the prevailing myths while highlighting the keys to overcoming the challenges associated with the gene variation from nutritional, herbal, and physical perspectives.
