    Default Graves disease and IVF

    I have been diagnosed with graves after having my first baby. I was treated with ptu which brought my levels down so I stopped taking it and my bloods have been normal for 8 weeks now.

    I have two frosties that I want to transfer. My endocrinologist says that I have to wait a while longer and see what my thyroid does before I can transfer them. I can't see why I shouldn't transfer them now while my levels are normal.

    I'm thinking about getting a second opinion. Do you think it is worth it?

    Has anyone had graves and transferred frosties? Or done ivf?

    Hi there. I don't have graves but am hyperthyroid from nodules. I underwent IVF whilst my levels were high but controlled on PTU and currently pregnant so there is definitely no reason why u can't go ahead now, esp since ur levels are normal!! I would be pushing for it but asking for very close monitoring. All the best!

    Thank you for replying 😄 that's my thinking. My levels are fine they have been normal for at least 2 months now. I'm going to see a different endo this week and get a second opinion. I just don't have a good feeling about the dr I'm seeing now. She is very straight down the line and I still don't even understand this Graves' disease thing. I'll let you know how I go 😄

    Hi there, curious to see how you went with seeing the new endo?

    I was diagnosed with graves before we starting trying to get pregnant and had total thyroidectomy. On daily thyroxine now, my first IVF specialist thought my uncontrolled thyroid (at the time, all fine now) could be what caused miscarriage of first cycle.

    If your levels have been normal I thought the endo should be happy to go ahead. Hope you had more luck with the new endo

    That's great news. Wishing you luck!

    My endo just rang last night to say she's worried about my levels so just had another BT. Hoping they won't say I need to stop IVF meds
