About Me: Female, 29, fort stewart/hinesville, GA, member since Mar 2008
I had been TTC for nearly a year and a half when i was finally diagnosed with Hypothyroidism. To my knowledge there were never tests done to find out why. I was put on 75mcg and as i was already really forgetfully and feeling many many symptoms of the hypothyroidism i w
[More]as not doing so well remembering to take my medication. I was able though to get my levels the normal range at the first 6 week check up. My husband who is currently serving in iraq, left for there about 6 months after my being diagnosed. However after all the perscriptions ran out i never went back to the doctor to get more until now. which is about a year and a half of being off of it. My husband is due home at the end of this month, and i have since gone back to the doctor, had my levels rechecked and been put back on medication, now at 100mcg as my levels were 7-8. im 21 years old at this time. I know that i am still young but it seems like once all the doctors hear my age they dont care about my infertility problems because they figure that i have years to work them out. non of them seem to realize how much my husband and i really want to have a baby. not to mention the fact that he is deployed 15 months every other year, and that adding those times in really doesnt leave that much time for having a family. however on a better note he is due home at the end of this month and i am exciting to get back to TTC.
You are in my prayers. I just wanted you to know that I truely feel your pain. I hope everything works out for you and your husband. I have a comment on the main page about my story.
Take care, Cristal
