Hi everyone! First time poster…I actually just found this site yesterday and already I’ve learned so much! To make a long story short: my husband and I have been told that we need ICSI to get pregnant (my husband has extremely low sperm count). I’ve had bloodwork done (although I haven’t received AMH info from them yet…) and all the other screenings - I’m good to go. The only thing that was off was my TSH.
Now I was diagnosed with Graves Disease 4 years ago and had Radioactive Iodine Therapy twice to kill my thyroid so I’m on a daily dose of Synthroid to keep me going. I’m working with my endocrinologist to get my TSH back down to where my fertility guy wants it, but I’m nervous about what’s going to happen once we start IVF. Will I need to be monitored weekly, or every couple days?? Will there be “graves” side-effects? I’ve been hypoactive for so long I don’t think I’ll know what to do with myself once I get closer to the hyper/normal side of things!
Thanks in advance!
