I found out today that I am pregnant (only 2 to 3 weeks) and on Friday I started taking T3 only because I am experimenting on what could make me feel better because T4 seems to be an issue, although I can not really find out because they do not do rT3 tests in this country for me to know for sure.
I plan to be in London at the end of the month and will do rT3 test then.
Here is the picture:
January 2017: Man down. Bedridden. Can walk if I put my mind to it. Feeling drunk!
Started T4 (Levo) on June 15 2017: Didn't help. Only slight change. Bedridden.
Started ThyroGold on August 6th: Got energy back. No Longer Bedridden. Not 100% but good. Dizziness and drunk feeling goes away. (Thyrogold 150 has 50mcg T4 and 25mcg T3 they say)
Started T3 Only 25mcg 1 September: Feel the same as on ThyroGold. Too early to tell.
Found out I'm pregnant today!
My questions are:
1. Am I taking too little T3 since I took out T4 out the question?
2. Is it safe to take T3 only during pregnancy?
3. Should I just go back to ThyroGold 150mg?
4. Any advice in general as I am new to this.
Also, I am not telling my new gynaecologist about any of this because they would not be happy about T3, or ThyroGold, even though that is probably what helped me get pregnant.
Thanks a mil.
