FINALLY got my diagnosis from my GP. I took the results from Medicheck. Although she agreed that my TSH was high and has prescribed levothyroxine 50 mcg which I have started today, she said my thyroglobulin antibodies were borderline (they were 116 in a range of 0 - 115) and they would retest.
My fiancé and I have been trying to conceive for almost 3 years. Last year after some tests at a fertility clinic we were diagnosed with unexplained infertility. In the same timeframe, I have gained almost 4stone in weight which my Dr today said is most likely down to the Hypothyroidism.
Could the introduction of levothyroxine help us conceive naturally if I can get my TSH down? I believe it should be somewhere between 1 - 2 to optimise fertility. We were looking at IVF to start in January so wondered how quickly my TSH may drop and if it does drop, could we have a better chance of conceiving naturally?
I need to get my weight down so my BMI drops and hoping the medication will help that. Also gone gluten free too.
Thanks in advance for any advice!
