Any ladies out there TTC with hypothyroid? How has the experience been for you in your journey? I am TTC and new to the disorder and was just trying to get a feel for others experience.

I'm lurking the boards...I'm not plus sized, but I do have (had...just found out it flipped into being hyperthyroidism lol) and was able to conceive. My daughter is 4 months old now and I got pregnant after 2 months. Hang in there! You can definitely get pregnant with hypothyroidism!!

If you could, can you give your experience like what you did, your meds, things like that. I am over weight and of course ttc, but I am worried that it's going to take awhile to get pregnant. We, well I decided to try the sperm meets egg plan in the hopes that I can get a BFP soon, and just wanted to get as much advice as I can.

Well, I was on synthroid (I think it was 125 mcg) and I tried to take it as regularly as possible, but to be honest I always missed a day or two. My cycles were always irregular so not sure when I O'd, but I know when I got pregnant it HAD to have been with DH behind me and me on all fours. I took some prenatals too. My best advice would be to regularly check your levels, MAKE SURE that if they ever switch your meds from one to another (like a generic) to re test your levels too because the generics never worked as well for me as the synthroid.

I noticed this is in the "Overweight and Infertile" section, so I thought first I should clarify that I do have hypothyroidism but I'm not overweight. I was just diagnosed and started 50mg of synthroid a few months ago. We've been TTC for almost a year now with one chemical but nothing since I started meds, so I'm not sure how helpful I am... Still trying over here. I guess mostly I just wanted to wish you luck

I'm over weight and hypo, been on meds for 15 years. Took us 13 months and Clomid to conceive our twins even tho I ovulate on my own. We have been trying for baby 3 since 2012 with no luck so far.. but it could happen on any given cycle with proper timing!

Hey, there's me!
I am new to both TTC AND hypothyroid.
Got TSH tested in July (4.2), GP said "it's fine, come in 6 months again". I started TTC last month, then read on the web that one should have no more than 2.5 before TTC!!
I went to another GP and got TSH tested again. Results tomorrow. I hope this won't make the journey any longer!
Babydust to you!
