TSH 6.99, Thyroid Peroxidase Antibod 441, T4 Normal AND trying to conceive! Not on meds, anybody been in same situation or can help?

Concerned as have read NICE guidelines regarding starting treatment if trying to conceive or pregnant. GP has referred me to local hospital for infertility (although had previous pregnancy which had a bad outcome in 2012). From what I have read it seems that TSH should be below 2 if trying to conceive. Would value input/advice on this! Thank you.

I wonder if any information in these might help.


I think you should insist on an endo referral and monthly testing right through your pregnancy. Have a look at the Hypothyroid Mom page - she is pushing for testing of all pregnant women and those trying to conceive.
