Hi, I have an over active thyroid and have been takin propylitharicil for 2 years. ( they put me on this as I was having ivf and planning a pregnancy.) I've been on the lowest dose now 50mg a day for the past 12 months .
I'm now 22 weeks pregnant and yesterday the endocrinologist said he wants to change my medication to carbimazole , as he said they normally only keep people on the propylitharicil for up to a year and half , as it could cause liver damage to me .
He then said that the new drug he wanted to put me on has a 2 in 100 chance of causing birth defects to my baby but that it was rare.
I'm now really worried ,so I haven't started the new Med , - and I'm going to continue with my old med.
Has anyone had experience of using these mess in pregnancy ?? Thanks .
