Following 2 unsuccessful IVF rounds last year one of which I think may have been unsuccessful due to my thyroid levels being too high, I went to see a private Endocrinologist. He asked me to stop all medication for a month so he could accurately see what my thyroid levels were.
After confirming I was hypothyroid, he upped my medication from 75mi of levothyroxine to 100mi. After 6 weeks of the increased dose, I retested my bloods with Medichecks and the results are below. (I had a blood test with the GP where T3 + T4 were requested, but the results came back without the T3 + T4 results). TheEndocrinologist also said my raised antibodies were nothing to be worried about.
I forwarded the results to my GP, who has said that I am overmedicated, and has asked me to take 100mi Levothyroxine Monday - Friday, and 75mi on Saturday & Sunday. I'm not sure that it works that way. Is it dangerous to be slightly overmedicated?
I am about to start another round of IVF in a few weeks. During the last cycle, I asked to test the TSH every time I added a new medication though the cycle, and I could see the levels did go up as a result of the IVF meds.
Any advice is gratefully received.
