I discovered I had autoimmune thyroid disease after my first child. I was so dizzy I was blacking out every five minutes, losing hair and I lost 60 pounds in six weeks. I was extremely hyperthyroid and didn’t know it. I have a history of miscarriage and it could potentially be linked to the fact I have antibodies for Graves and Hashimotos. If you have these antibodies and you TSH elevates above 2.5, it can cause miscarriage.
So I got my TSH levels checked at they were over 10. Not good. I’m doubling my meds for now until I can get another appointment.
i was being evaluated my a fertility specialist and one thing they had me do was a Clomid challenge. You take Clomid for five days during a specific time in your cycle and it measures how your body responds to the introduction of the hormones. Clomid can also increase your chances of pregnancy by about 6%. Another thing I’m reading is it might elevate TSH levels. Waiting to hear back from endocrinologist about whether this is real or if it’s artificial form the Clomid. Or whether it can cause miscarriage regardless of whether Clomid caused it.
Also, I will hear back about whether I’m doubling this afternoon.
