Hi all, I was diagnosed hyperthyroid in May and am on 40mg of Carbimazole and 100g of Levothyroxine (block and replace therapy). I was really hoping to start trying for a baby but my consultant has strongly recommended not doing this as it would be both a risk to me and the baby. He has said that I need to complete the 'schedule' of treatment which will last between 12 and 18 months but he thinks 18 months is more likely. That will mean that I will be 35/36 when I have a baby if I'm able to get pregnant straight away, which leaves a 5 year age gap between my little girl and baby. We are currently taking his advice in not trying to conceive but I don't want to look back and regret this.......any advice anyone? Thank you for your time xx
