I am new to this forum, and grateful to have found this community, as I have learned a lot about Hashimoto's.
I started taking Eutyrox six weeks ago, 25 mg, with TSH 5,5 (0,4-4) and FT4 17 (12-22). Few days ago had blood analysis with new results, TSH 7,3 and FT4 17,2. Endocrynologist increased my dose to 50 mg. Two days ago I had sex with my husband and the condom burst, and I am in my fertile days. I know that I should not stay pregnant at this TSH, because of baby's brain development later so I immediately called my endo.
I contamplated taking morning after pill, and asked her what to do, she said to relax, not worry and watch for my next period, in approximately 18 days.
I've been worried sick about this, and confused as to why she did not further increase my dose, to 75 mg.
I am 36 years old, no pregnancies before, and the the strange thing is I had none of the here mentioned symptoms of hypothyroidism or Hashimotto's before, except for cold intolerance.
Please excuse my bad English, not my mother tongue and hopefully you can give me some advice, as I cannot sleep worrying about this.
Is my dose insufficent in case i am pregnant, and can it be already increased from 25 mg to 75 mg safely?
Thanks in advance for your time!
