Our expert says:
I would recommend that you ask the doctor(s) who is/are going to give you the fertility treatment to arrange for you to have the relevant blood tests done at your local pathology lab to test for vitamin and mineral deficiencies. From what you say, I would also agree that you may be suffering from multiple vitamin and mineral deficiencies. If you are not prepared for these doctors to know about your bulimia (something you should in all fairness to all concerned, esp the unborn baby, speak about openly), then you need to see your gp and ask him/her to examine your mouth and to send you for the tests. Depending on what results are obtained, you may need to take vitamin B complex supplements plus a complete vitamin and mineral supplement and iron to counteract any iron deficiency anaemia you may have. I do hope that you will first rectify any nutritional deficiencies you may have before you have the fertility treatments and before you fall pregnant.
Wishing you all the best and a healthy, happy pregnancy when you have fully regained your health
