Not sure if I'm posting in the right area but here goes .. almost two weeks ago I had a missed miscarriage and I guess I'm just looking for answers...
I just came across some very interesting information and quite by accident ..
Turns out that a thyroid with a goiter along with antibodies that attack the thyroid along with an underactive thyroid (all symptoms I have) are the symptoms to something called Hashimoto’s disease. Turns out that this auto immune disease causes miscarriage and can cause birth defects if left untreated.
I’ve booked an appointment with my doctor but in the meantime has anyone ever been diagnosed with this? If so, how did you go about getting pregnant again? Did you have a specialist monitor your pregnany? Were you classed as high risk?
I’m not saying this was the cause of my miscarriage but imagine if it was and it could be totally avoided next time? I just know that it can’t be healthy to have a goiter and antibodies that attack my thyroid considering a growing baby needs thyroid hormone up until the 12 week mark for brain, kidney and liver growth.
I'm hoping someone out there has an experience to share ..
