I have actually not been tested personally. My cousin passed away of a pulmonary embolism and afterwards her parents got genetic testing and they both have MTHFR - it's recessive meaning they both had two copies so each parent passed on an affected copy to all their children. Her sister and brother were tested and yes, both had the recessive condition. I finally convinced my parents to get testing after my dad assuring me he couldn't have the condition (my mother's brother is my cousin's dad) and learned that both my parents have it in the recessive condition. My sister was tested and she also has it and so does her daughter. Her husband and son each have one copy plus a second clotting factor. I haven't been tested but it's virtually certain I do have it. I have a copy of the genetic counselor's report on my parents.
