Originally my thyroid levels were 4.65
I went on Synthroid nd my levels, after six weeks, came to 2.12
My doctor wants me to go up to 50mcg to get it below 2.
I hate going up in dosage. Would you?

Absolutly

Absolutely I would go up! Studies have shown that to get prego, you want your levels between 1-2. This is not a drug to be afraid of to go up in dose. My doctor told me it is one of the most almost natural synthetic drugs!

I agree as well to up your dose! The closer to 1 the better! Also, once you get pregnant most likely your levels are going to raise so a lower start is better to maintain a healthy pregnancy. Good luck!

Thyroid is one of the most common factors that affect the infertility in women. Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) motivates the thyroid to release hormones like T3 and T4. This thyroid problem may occur if these hormones are produced too much or too less. This could lead to fertility problems making it harder to get pregnant. A simple diagnosis step can be helpful in identifying the thyroid levels whether it is less or very high.
Food is also a major reason for thyroid health, hyperthyroidism can lead to infertility may cause due to the levels of iodine in food. Iodine is found in regular diet and other food sources. Certain amount of iodine is very helpful to health but too much iodine can lead to hypothyroid. There is a long relation between thyroid and infertility. Hypothyroidism is linked with an increased risk of problems during pregnancy, including miscarriage, preeclampsia, poor fetal growth premature birth and stillbirth. Many of the doctors recommend that thyroid test at the time of 35 is compulsory for every women as these are very common in young women in these days. The treatment to the thyroid is simple and it shows safe results in the women menstrual cycle very soon.

I would absolutely go up with dosage! This is very important - as lower dosage doesn’t benefit. Moreover your doc is sure this may bring success, then why not to try??
What makes you doubt this fact, if you don’t mind me asking?
With my medical history and the things we’ve already gone through I just do what I’m said. Because I do trust the specialists who give me hope for success.
I wish you put your mind at rest soon and go on with your treatment smoothly. Hugs, hun X
