Hi was just wondering if anyone knows why my gp wants me to wait 12 weeks this time instead of 8?
I waited 7 weeks last time (so that I could get my results back and an appt before running out of meds at 8 weeks) and my tsh had gone from 6.53 (0.27-4.2) on 25mcg t4 to 4.7 on 50mcg.
She increased me to 75mcg but wasn't at all happy I'd only waited 7 weeks and said we're supposed to wait 3 months so to wait next time.
What would be her reason for wanting me to wait 3 months instead? I know it says on here it takes 6 weeks to metabolise the dose so test 6-8 weeks.
I haven't felt any better since increasing to 75mcg and with my tsh being back close to within range from increasing to 50's I really thought I would or would nearly be.
I've actually felt worse and I'm 2 weeks late on my already long and irregular cycle so nearly 2 months without and I'm not pregnant.
Is there any reason other than wanting to leave us to struggle a bit longer?
I'm supplementing for deficient folic acid and vit d which were normal last test and due a b12 injection a week today (and counting)
