WELCOME to the community.
How do you feel on the 100mcgs and I would ask for a bloodraw in 6 weeks vs. 8 weeks to be certain all is going ok.
I don't have experience in the pregnancy area; I am hoping others will drop by to say hello and help out ..
I am sorry for your loss; I hope you can get some answers soon ..
Yes, me! For years and years, I could never get pregnant. Then, my doctor raises my dose once more, and after a few weeks I started feeling better than I had in sooo long. Symptoms started going away, and a few months after being on my "optimal" dose, I got pregnant fairly easily. I felt like my thyroid problem was the only reason that was keeping me from getting pregnant, and it seems I was right. I once had a doctor tell me, that it would be really hard to get pregnant while having hypothyroidism, and it seems he was right.
One thing to keep in mind is..you can't rush this medicine, nor your recovery. Take it slowly. Your health needs to be #1 on your priority list right now. Even if you got pregnant now, having not enough amounts of thyroxine in your system can have devastating effects on your child. You may also not feel well enough to take care of the child. I don't mean to burst your bubble..but you need to take care of yourself first before you can take care of a baby.
Wish you well,
Thank you Karly for your reply. That gives me a lot of hope. I am trying to be positive and to see things on the bright side. it is weird, but currently i have been feeling a lot better than i have in a while. they say that it takes at least 4 weeks for synthroid to work, and I believe that it is true. I have been on it for 5 weeks and currently am feeling a lot better. Thank you for the advice, will follow.
Hi! I'm 30 and just recently started tests. My doctor thinks it's hashimoto's but we are waiting on the antibody test. I too, want to get pregnant. It's great to hear about someone who has been successful; it definitely give hope! Hang in there Jakc, your not alone. I'd like to know how things turn out for you.
