I had a mc and d&c yesterday. I have been on medication for hypothyroidism for over 20 years so as part of my prenatal testing, my thyroid levels were checked and my tsh levels had jumped 8+ points since my last blood tests in June 2013. My dosage was changed this week the genetic counselor decided to run thyroid antibody test to see if there are/were any autoimmune issues going on. The test came back positive and I am now being referred to an endocrinologist. I have done some research on thyroid antibodies and it turns out that women with hypothyroidism that test positive for antibodies have a hard time maintaining a pregnancy. It is hard enough to go through this loss but to learn that my own body could have potentially been part of the reason for this miscarriage is very hard to take. I have not been diagnosed with hashimoto's or graves but I do have and have had some autoimmune issues in the past that are symptoms of hashimotos - I have had vitiligo since birth and a few yrs ago had an alopecia spot appear on my head - the hair grew back with the help of cortisone injections and I have not had any other issues until now. DH and I do want to TTC again but I just don't know if my body will accept another pregnancy. Has anyone else had these kinds of issues with thyroid?
