AHHHHHH! I am on 50mg of thyroid medication because my RE put me on them because he said that my levels were normal however they like women who are TTC or pregnant to have a level of 2.5 or lower because there are studies that show anything higher can lead to mc. My level was 3.5before meds. Well they must have ran another thyroid test and now my levels have gone up (over the amount for even a normal person)! WTH! I never had hypothyroid issues nor does any one in my family! Can all these fertility meds be wacking my thyroid out of balance? Now I have to take 75mg of synthroid and she said that I prob. will have to take meds for my whole life if this is a start of a thyroid problem! I just can't win with anything these days

So sorry Jamie! I don't know much about thyroid. I just had mine tested for IVF and it was 2.4. I did some research to see what a good # was and I thought it was anything under 5?? Did they tell you what your number was? I hope it is just a fluke and you don't have to be on meds for long. I hope someone has some insight on a correlation of fertility meds and it going up.

Ovarian cysts can falsly increase TSH (Thyroid hormone). When I did my IVF cycle my TSH was first 5.8 then 8.0 or something. I was put on Synthroid as a precaution. About 3 months into my pregnancy i took myself off it and my levels were tested and everything was fine. Just keep up on it.

My OB likes to see under 2. I'm on 75mg now. They are shocked they only had to raise it 25mg since I got pregnant.
