Hi, sorry this might have already been covered. Has anyone had issues with infertility as a result of an underactive thyroid?. Been ttc for 3 years, all tests done and came back fine, except TSH levels which were over 5 at one point. On meds for it and waiting for levels to come down. Has anyone had a similar experience and conceived soon after levels were low?
My thyroid is a little underactive (can't remember exact levels) and when I was discussing it with my clinic I was told a slightly under active thyroid is good for ivf and they didn't want me to treat it because of that. I went away and googled it and found some corresponding research. Not sure if yours is too under active but just something to be aware of
Ok thats interesting thanks. IVF is an option for us too and we're not ruling it out but it might still be possible for us to conceive naturally once my levels are below 2.5. Tired of the waiting game!
I have conceived three time since being diagnosed with hypothyroidism. The important thing for fertility is to have your TSH reading at 2 or under. Anything higher can impact your fertility - this was according the endocrinologist I saw when pregnant with DC1.
