Hi all ,
I am hoping you can give me some answers as information online is a bit confusing to me.
Me and my husband have been trying to conceive for over a year . Reproductive wise everything is normal no issues found . However when i asked to see my blood tests from the gp,which came back as "normal" i found out that my TSH was at 3.4. Which is considered normal under the nhs guidelines
I discussed this with a private fertility consultant in the past when i was doing some initial scans and i remember him mentioning than when ttc or pregnant your tsh levels should be as close to 1 as possible and not over 2
I am now convinced that since everything else seems ok this is the reason that i am having trouble conceiving
My question is how can i make the gp take me seriously and prescribe something to reduce tsh levels ? I dont undeatand why does the nhs have a guideline of up to 4.5 when is widely accepted that is too high when ttc
Also is it likely that the private dertility consultant will be able to prescribe medication for this if the go refuses to do anything else
Any advice will be much appreciated
