Hypothyroid & TTC

Postby mnb89 » Thu Oct 23, 2014 6:12 am

Hello!
So this will be a long post, but I want to get the details out first. :)

TTC since March. In June we figured out my husband had a zero sperm count due to testosterone therapy he was getting from a different doctor. He started Clomid in July, we went back to the doctor after 3 months and his count was 45 million with high mobility and morphology. So all is good for him now!

I found out in the spring that I had slightly high TSH levels. This was very strange to me considering I have no symptoms and I'm very healthy. I'm 24, 5'7, 125lbs, highly active, I do CrossFit regularly and eat very clean. Non-GMO, gluten free, etc. I was referred to a specialist since I'm TTC. In the summer he put me on 25mcg of Levothyroxine, and after 6 weeks I saw him again. My levels actually got worse, went from 5.93 to 6.54 (I'm aware this isn't extreme hypothyroidism but because I'm TTC he wants it between 1.0-2.0) He raised my dose to 50mcg and I see him in a few weeks.

I'm writing, to see if anyone else has hypothyroidism and their experience with TTC. A friend of my family has hypothyroidism and had to use Clomid both times to get pregnant. I'm going to talk to him about that when I see him next.

I should ovulate within the next 48 hours so I am hopeful, but nervous. :)
Would love to hear of someone else's experiences!

Yay! Got my test results back from yesterday's blood work! TSH was 2.8 T4 was 1.2 and T3 was 2.8!
Not as low as my Endo wants (between 1 - 2) but it's so much better than TSH 6.5 six weeks ago!
We will see what he says Monday but I'm thrilled it got better this time! :)
