I have reading up on the need to increase levothyroxine during the first three months of pregnancy. We are going to try to get pregnant soon and I am currently on 100 mcg levothyroxine. My question is, what do you think is the best approach to making sure my medication is right: talk to the GP before or after getting pregnant to see what their approach is? Are there standard approaches for this?
Have you found your GP knew to increase medication or have some decided to raise the medication on their own? Do you get offered regular tests for thyroid? Do they test just TSH or also T3/T4? Do they use the usual reference range for TSH or is it supposed to be lower for pregnancy (mine at my last test was 2.67, so not very low, but within their normal range).
Thanks for the help everyone.
