    Default TTC & Thyroid Issues

    Hello everyone, I am new to this site as I need some support with TTC and not falling pregnant. My husband and I have been having unprotected sex for the past 5 years and have not fallen pregnant naturally so I have started seeing a specialist this year. I have never been pregnant and have had a series of tests including flushing of the fallopian tubes and it has been found that my thyroid has been low and high. I am seeing an endocrinologist on Thursday. My question is have any women had success in getting pregnant after resolving thyroid issues? Please help as this is a very sad time in my life

    Short answer, yes. I was found to have Hashimotos and hypothyroiditis after TTC for 10 months with a missed miscarriage thrown in there. Two months after starting on thyroxine, I fell pregnant and now have a very healthy 2.5 year old DD. There were other things I did to improve my chances but I feel that getting my thyroid under control was vital. Best of luck xx

    I saw a doctor before TTC and discovered I had hypothyroidism. Once my medication levels were right, I fell pregnant from our first month of TTC (but had a MMC), then fell with DS1 three or four cycles later. Two years later, I fell with DS2 first month TTC. So yes, there is definitely hope once your TSH, T3 and T4 are sorted!

    For TTC, my understanding is that it's preferable to have a TSH <1.0. It's also important to have stable TSH during the first few months of pregnancy (until the baby's thyroid states to function), so it's good to get it all under control first. Fortunately, it's generally pretty easy to treat.

    Thanks so much ladies. My concern is that I have never ever been pregnant so having unprotected sex for so long without falling pregnant is so deflating. Hopefully the Endocronoligist I am seeing tomorrow will be able to shed some more light on this issue. I just want a baby so bad plus my partner has children from a previous relationship so I feel so inadequate right now!
