As the title suggests..

Anyone with hashimoto's been successful in ttc and had you suffered any miscarriages?

If so did you do anything differently etc?

i had difficulty conceiving before I was diagnosed. I was actually only diagnosed after getting pregnant with no2 DD after a miserable couple of years with Dd1. I used an ovulation checker in the end to tell me when I was ovulating. This worked.

I did after 2 years trying naturally. I now have a 1 year old DD. I increased my iron and tracked my ovulation. I'm on 50mg levothyroxine daily atm and was 27 when I conceives my daughter. I'd recommend speaking to your gp and getting your thyroid levels tested regularly (when this coronovirus stuff is all over)

It took me nearly a year to conceive DC1. When he was about 4 months old, I was diagnosed with Hashimotos.

I then got pregnant 3 more times, each time within the first or second month of trying. Two of those pregnancies ended in MC although I have no reason to think that had anything to do with Hashimotos.

The third pregnancy ended in a healthy DC2. I was monitored very closely throughout (I’m not in the UK and had immediate access to an endocrinologist who sat in the office next to my OB/GYN. My TsH levels were constantly changing throughout, and by the third trimester, I was taking 275mg of thyroxine a day.

Good luck xx

Hi all, thanks for this.

My last blood test showed TSH at 0.66...didnt get any T4 results annoyingly.

I had a missed miscarriage in Sept last year and have since had 2 chemical pregnancies.

Fingers crossed I'm luckier next time x
