Re: Hyperthyroid

  • I was diagnosed as hyperthyroid in my third pregnancy.  My TSH was non-existent.  My doctor said that often times it re-adjusts by the end of the first trimester so he didn't prescribe medication.  Right at the time we were discussing me going on medication, I miscarried.  I was assured, by multiple doctors, that my thyroid was not the cause of my miscarriage. 

    I believe it's a little harder to treat hyperthyroidism vs hypo in pregnancy.  Oddly, after my miscarriage I become hypothyroid and have been ever since.

    Kelly, Mom to Christopher Shannon 9.27.06, Catherine Quinn 2.24.09, Trey Barton lost on 12.28.09, Therese Barton lost on 6.10.10, Joseph Sullivan 7.23.11, and our latest, Victoria Maren 11.15.12

    Secondary infertility success with IVF, then two losses, one at 14 weeks and one at 10 weeks, then success with IUI and then just pure, crazy luck.  Expecting our fifth in May as the result of a FET.
