Ivf and hyperthyroid


#1

I am 27 year old , and going to do the IVF next month.http://forums.fertilitycommunity.com/images/smilies/pray.gif
My TSH level is very low after i took my synthroid 50 mcg. Mine was 6 before i taking the medicine… My RE suggested this medicine to decrease it from 6. to nearly 0 … now my TSH is .22. http://forums.fertilitycommunity.com/images/smilies/af.gif I am little worried because the normal range of TSH is .4 to 3 … http://forums.fertilitycommunity.com/images/smilies/geek3.gifAnd my RE is saying you are fine with your .22 TSH level. I think now i am hyperthyroid and i have very less bleeding while my period. My FSH and all other blood test is normal. Is it normal for the IVF … is this because, while doing IVF they will give all the hormone like FSH and progesterone . And the only need for the thyroid hormone is after the implantation of embryo??? Plese help me to figure out this…
The reason for IVF is hydrosalpinx on my both tube ,and i removed it prior to IVF.

You should be fine. I went through the same thing with my thyroid. You are not that far from “normal” and the results of the TSH test can vary a little. Doctors are more concerned with the underactive thyroid because it can contribute to miscarriage. I personally feel better when my TSH is on the low end, plus if you do get pregnant, your TSH will probably go back up and you may even need to increase your thyroid medicine.

Sana86 - I have a thyroid that is constantly up and down, and upon the advice and [I]request[/I] of my RE and Primary, I got my thyroid to an optimal level for fertility before starting my first IVF cycle. It took a number of months and medication changes to achieve but both docs said havng optimal thyroid levels helps out immensely. Best wishes with your IVF cycle, i hope it’s a success

I agree…I think your TSH level is fine and once you become pregnant it will elevate. During my pregnancy it was all over the place and I had to keep upping my dose. It the beginning it was alittle over 2 and I was so scared because I previously had a chemical pregnancy when my levels elevated to over 5 so in 2 weeks I took 4 extra 100mcg pills and it dropped down to .16 and everything was still fine. At the end of my pregnancy it was at .11.

Good luck with your IVF!
