A 21-year-old male asked:
I had an mthfr test ran and they found a single copy of the c677t but no a1298c. could this be causing my infertility?

No: Mthfr mutations have been associated with recurrent miscarriage. The linkage is very weak and not even be real. Even if they do, you need to have 2 mutations which you do not. They do not cause infertility.
