TTC thyroid problems

Cendy - August 29

Hi all! I have been TTC for almost a year now and I have thyroid problems. I had a thyroidectomy about two years ago due to Graves disease which cause my thyroid to enlarge into a goiter. My thyroid levels are within normal ranges and I have been on Clomid for 5 cycles now with no luck. Does anyone else have this kind of thyroid problems while TTC? I would love to have someone to talk to in my same position. Baby dust to all!

Hi Cendy...I have Hashimoto's disease (which is an underactive thyroid I believe). I have been aware of it for a couple of years now, and been on thryoxine - but each time I retest, they bump up my doseage just a little bit. Last test, they finally referred me to an endocronologist - so I have that appt. tomorrow. Also, my "jungle dr" (that's what I call her) said "the medicine man" (from the Amazon) says the thryroid gland is considered the third ovary - so important that it is in good health in order to make sure you keep a check on it and that it stays within appropriate ranges. Good luck....

Hashimotos for me too. I had 4 m/c before I found out I had it then only 1 healthy pregnancy -- been trying since without luck -- now I have thyroid probs, low progesterone and high prolactin and am on Dostinex. Not to mention, I'm OLD to boot!!! Good luck you guys!!

Hi Cee Bee and Renee. Cee Bee now that I have no thyroid gland at all, I have to keep check on my levels reguarly. I see an endocrinologist frequently. I knew the thyroid would be an issue when we decided to have more children, i just never dreamed it would be this hard to conceive. Renee I am so sorry to hear about the m/cs. I have only have one, so I can understand your pain. Good luck to the both of you!
