Hello, I wondered if anyone could help me with this query. I have been trying to conceive for two and a half years. After the first six months or so I found I had hypothyroidism with a sky high TSH of 31.2.
It took nearly a year to get this under control and it sits at .42 now. Docs persuaded me that my infertility was unexplained and that I needed IVF because of my age (37) even though nothing else was found wrong. This ended in a biochemical pregnancy. I went to see a new consultant privately who asked my GP to test for antithyroid peroxadase antibodies. Mine are >1300 so basically off the chart.
I have now been advised that I will not conceive naturally and that I need IVF with steroids. I still have days when I feel pretty dreadful even though my TSH is in range. I am off to see a private endo next week and wanted any top tips for my appointment (might as well get my money's worth!) Anyone else know anything about these antibodies and conception? Sorry for the long post!!
Thanks in advance for any responses.
