I just wondered if anyone has or knows anything about if Raynaud's syndrome could affect fertility. Basically, I was diagnosed with it a few years ago. It's a circulation problem, I only really get it if I'm out in the cold and my toes get really numb, and then my fingers get numb and lose color. I know it's not a real serious problem, but I was just thinking about that awhile ago, and forgot to ask you guys if you knew/heard anything about it.
I looked on the internet, but didn't find a whole lot of info regarding it and fertility. I may bring it up to my dr. at my next appt. Who knows, maybe taking like a baby aspirin every day is all I would need anyway, which he was having me do.
This is so weird some-one at work just told me that they have that and was explaining to me what it was. I really don't have an answer for you but I would ask RE if he has heard of this. Plus if your on medication for it isn't it controlled that way??? Good luck!!
Hey Laurie. I have never been officially diagnosed with this syndrome b/c I have never been to the doctor about it but I am almost positive that I have it. I read about it the other day on the internet after the tips of my two first fingers were so numb, I couldn't use them. Everything I read, didn't mention fertility, or at least, I don't think it did. I hope that it doesn't affect fertility.
Is there anything that the doctor has told you to do about it?
Hey there. To answer your question Kathy, I'm not actually on medication for it. They just put me on baby aspirin to help with thickening my endometrial lining. I just thought maybe the baby aspirin would help with the circulation to the extremeties, because I heard improving circulation is how it helps thicken the endometrial lining.
Anna, this actually started back when I was in high school. I had asked my cross country coach about it because I was starting to notice it after coming in from a run in the cold, and he told me about Raynaud's and he had it too. Anyway, I never really saw a Dr. about it in particular, but I had a physical a few years ago when I was in college, and brought it up because it happened to be cold and my fingers were numb from coming in from outside and lost color, so I asked him about it, and that's when he told me what it was. I never actually mentioned it to my RE because it's not really something I think about. Like I said, it only bothers me when I'm out in the cold for a period of time. But I will definitly ask my RE about it at my appt in a few weeks and let you know what they tell me!
