I'm now TTC and since I developed hypo as a result of my first pregnancy, I'm wondering if there is anything I should know or ask my Endo at my first appointment on the 25th. Risks, complications, change in care/meds, additional testing, repercussions for baby's health, etc

Thanks in advanced!

I've had 4 babies being hypo. I would get checked every 6 weeks to make sure things were staying normal. I don't remember any problems with them. Be sure to take your vitamins at a different time than your thyroid medicine. Can't think of anything else. Oh, they might scare you with premature delivery. I'm sure it happens but I didn't have that problem. I carried all 4 to 41-42 weeks.

I know many ladies who are hypo have progesterone defects... I would encourage you to make sure to rule that out once you start TTC (of course, that would be handled by your OB or RE, not your endo). Typically, it is recommended that for TTC, your *frees* should be at the upper end of normal or TSH of 1-2. Most endo's only go by TSH & not your *frees* though I disagree with that & think your *frees* are more important.

When you get pg I would def make sure you get your levels checked at least every 6 wks.

That's all I have at the moment but if I think of anything else, I'll let you know.

Thanks so much! Last month I had a lot of spotting in the 2WW which made me wonder about low progesterone. Do you know what kind of test they use to check that?

I haven't had any yet this month but I do know when my thyroid is off, my cycle gets screwy. Since going to to 175mcg I haven't had any problems like I did last fall/summer with super long cycles.

Progesterone is checked through blood work. More needle pokes! We're like walking pin cushions!

It is typically checked at 7 dpo but some dr's do it a little differently. My OB checked it on CD 23 NO MATTER when I Oed but the RE of course checks it 7 dpo. Progesterone above a 12 indicates successful O, anything below is anovulatory, according to my OB. Now I do know someone here on this board in the past got pg w/ a progesterone of 8 so it can happen.
