My tsh went for 1.77 to 4.84 in a month. Been feeling horrible, tired, fatigued and worn out. I knew something was wrong,but I figured it was the bcp. Started two thyroid pills a day and will retest tsh in six weeks. I asked dr to test sooner, so hopefully she will write me back.
RE dr isn't concerned, which is what I thought he would do. RE dr don't seem to know how important tsh really is to be around 1. I am not surprised. He also said it was not the birth control that made my tsh go up and then I opened a magazine my mom just gave me, Women's World July 25, 2011 and it said "Almost 40% of women develop sluggish thyroids within two months of starting the pill; doctors say switching to another form of birth control may resolve the problem." Oh well, now I have to watch and see what happens after I go off of bcp with increased meds.
I attended my ivf protocol class. DH was shocked by all the meds I will be taking. I told him it was a lot of work! He is freaked out about having to give me progesterone since he HATES needles. I am calm, feeling like it will all workout. Meds were a small fortune not to mention ivf itself. Really praying I get a few frozen embies so that I can do another cycle regardless of outcome. Would be great to get a baby from first try and another one later, but my odds are really low due to elevated fsh. I just have to pray that my fsh has been high due to other factors and I am now getting it down. I will continue acupuncture with Nancy.
