hysteroscopy and elevated tsh and prolactin — The Bump

hysteroscopy and elevated tsh and prolactin

So it seems like we have been hitting every roadblock possible at this point. We were supposed to start this cycle September 1st, but I just had my pre-op bloodwork come back with elevated tsh and prolactin levels. I'm having surgery on thursday to remove some polyps that were found during my etegrity and receptivity biopsies...

So basically this cycle is off, I had a re blood draw this morning and am on a low dose of levothyroxine, to see if my tsh levels will come down. Wondering if any one has had similar experiences... Just kinda frusterated at this point.

Re: hysteroscopy and elevated tsh and prolactin

  • I'm in the same boat - stuck and frustrated. I was planning to have my first IUI this month but they found something on the ultrasound that they want to look at, remove, and biopsy. So I'm stuck waiting for AF so I can schedule the hysteroscopy. This means I probably won't get to try even in September. It's such a bummer. I don't have any advice, just know that you aren't alone!

  • I have high prolactin. Surprisingly, that was one of the first things my OBGYN tested me for and then had an MRI to see if there was a tumor on my pituitary gland (there wasn't). I have been on bromocriptine daily for about 1.5 years and it's been normal ever since.
  • I was diagnosed with elevated prolactin and anovulatory cycles. Once I started bromocriptine my cycles became more regular and I started ovulating. I have been off it for almost a year and I have had 2 anovulatory cycles and 3 longer cycles. Will be going back to my gynecologist for new bloodwork and hopefully going back on the meds again.
