I went in for a routine physical. Found out I have an underactive thyroid. Totally caught me off guard since I've always had normal levels.

Anyone else experience this? Is this a postpartum thing since I just had my baby in July? I have yet to speak to my doctor.

Husband and I are trying for baby number 2.

  • No experience. Sorry. I would set up a follow up with the doc!

    I have been down this route. My levels were always normal until after DD1. Went for a routine physical and the number was slightly off. I read online that this could be post partum related, so I assumed it was temporary. My doctor put me on the meds. I asked if I had to stay on them forever. She said yes. This was contrary to what I had read online.

    I suspect the thyroid level being off contributed to my milk supply issues.

    Fast forward to DD2. I stayed on the meds and they monitored my levels every month. It is important to have a healthy level while pregnant.

    After DD2, I had another physical and asked again with my new general doctor if I could get off the meds. I basically read that general doctors don't have time to do follow up testing to wean you off the meds. She said no.

    I booked an appt with an endocrinologist anyways. We went over my whole history. He said I should stop taking the drugs and agreed I probably had post partum hypothyroditist. He believed it was the case because of my age, history of not having a problem and because it was only slightly off after pregnancy. He told me I didn't need to wean and could just stop taking the meds. I have a follow up with him to check my levels. I asked about milk supply. He said only if my numbers were totally off would it affect my supply. He said the numbers can be off for up to a year post partum. If they come back off, we will just continue to monitor. He also stated he would never have put me on meds in the first place.

    Basically, I just learned to go with your gut and question.

  • I'm watching the show Mad Men and I just wanted to say that I love it! Do you like Mad Men? Anyone? The red head is my favorite ;-)

    Yes. Joan is the shit! She's pretty progressive for a woman in the 1950s/1960s. Plus, she is totally doable.

  • I dealt with it after baby #1. My doctor told me that it's quite common to have your thyroid thrown off after pregnancy. I have to get tested every 6 months and if it shows that my levels are off I get a 3 month prescription to get it back to normal. The last 3 years I've had no problem and this past pregnancy didn't cause any problems.

  • Oh my gosh you guys. I thought this was a place for support and where you could ask questions. If you don't have a good answer then dont open the thread. You're all so rude and I feel sorry for your husbands and children. Why don't you get off the internet and pay attention to your kids. /sarcasm font.

    I think I'm in love with you. :x :x

  • I just want to know why she didn't come back. We weren't mean, and we actually answered her question. A "thank you" goes a long way @JustLilOMe.

  • Does anyone else google SNs to see if the person has a web presence elsewhere? I'm sure it's a different person but there's a man who goes by "justlilome" on a dating website for Muslims.
    hahaha I lurv you so hard.  :x
