Hi, I would like some advice on meds and trying for a baby and being pregnant.
I was under Dr Skinner (whom many will know, but sadly he passed away) Dr Skinner diagnosed me with Hypothyroidism last year (after 8-9 years worth of symptoms), although my bloods are NORMAL. I have tried thyroxine and armour some prescribed by him, some myself but cost has been an issue as well as not being under a doctor to supervise and direct me on dose etc. so I have been a little on and off them this year. I may have seen some improvement in weight management on armour, but struggled noticing lots of improvement, wanting to try T3 next.......
Now wanting to try for first baby after getting married last month, currently on no thyroid, considering trying T3 now cash flow better, but unsure what the right thing to do is regarding getting pregnant and throughout if it happens?? should i self medicate thyroid meds, which ones etc etc??
The whole situation worrys me normally because of no doctor and cant afford to see a private one again who may not even prescribe, but what to do when a baby is involved too.
Any advice welcomed.
