Hi all! Has anyone gone through IVF with Hashimoto’s/Hypothyroidism?
I’m one week into my first round of IVF on the NHS. I’ve been taking my bureselin injections and I’m feeling good. However I had a private blood test done for a full profile of my thyroid function. I may benefit from a slight increase in my Levothyroxine dose, according to the NICE guidelines, and my Anti-Thyroglobulin ABS levels are high (137.6 when should be under 115). Unfortunately I feel the NHS hasn’t been very thorough with my thyroid testing, and they’re reluctant to increase my dose.
I want to make sure my health is optimal for IVF. I’m concerned about my anti-bodies levels being high, and I wonder if this has an effect on implantation.
I’d like to find a private consultant, for a one off consultation as soon as possible. Does anyone know of a particularly good IVF consultant/clinic for people with thyroid issues??
I’d really appreciate some help advice! I live in Edinburgh, but would hope to find a consultant that would be able to talk over the phone, Skype or email.
