Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

Vitamin D deficiency is common and you should be on extra Vitamin D. This should not have an effect on a fetus, but you are not currently pregnant, so there is time to improve this imbalance. The other labs and ultrasound are largely normal. From what you are saying, there is nothing that would require that you wait for your visit with your OB/GYN to start trying to get pregnant.

I hope that this helps. Please contact me through the PREMIUM SERVICE if you would like more detail or a more timely response - Dr. Timothy Raichle
