I am hoping that someone out there can give me some advice. I'm doing a frozen cycle. I found myself in hospital about a week and a half ago; my TSH was tested and found to be 4.8. This was a shock to me as it had been 2.3 only two weeks before. The only thing that had changed was my starting IVF treatment. I'd started estrogen medication and been taking it a week or so at this point. I've since read that this can affect the uptake of Levo. I contacted my Endo and she advised that I up my Levo by 12.5 mcg.
So I had my transfer on Monday. And I am more relaxed and relatively more positive than I was with my first IVF cycle. But I am concerned about my TSH and how this might impact a growing embryo. This morning I upped my Levo by another 12.5. Now I am taking 100 mcg - I'd originally been on 75 mcg for ages.
I tend to think my Endo is a bit rubbish, and this process is highlighting this to me. Could anyone please give me some advice? Have you been through this and noticed your thyroid levels were affected by the IVF meds? How have you managed?
Thank you for your help and advice. And thank you for listening!
