I am 35 and was diagnosed with primary reynauds about 5 years ago. I suffer with the usual cold hands and feet and my finger joints used to swell very painfully before diagnosis. But since diagnosis i wear 2 pairs of socks and fingerless gloves at all time. They are like my second skin!
I have been trying to conceive for 3 months (which is still very early days) but much to my surprise i have read varying articles about how reynauds can affect (or not affect depending what you read) trying to conceive. The main one that concerned me was that the uterus lining can be thinner than required due to the bad circulation which can lead to implantation being more difficult and increase in miscarriage.
I havent been to my GP yet as at the time of my check up for starting to try for a baby i never even thought aout my Reynauds and she said to wait 6 months before going back. So i dont want to seem obsessive about tryng to conceive.
I would really be grateful of any experiences or opinions that anyone has to share. Thank you!
