Hi Ladies, I think I will be joining this section of the board....So a little background on me I'm married to my wonderful DH and we have a five year old DS Holden. I found out about my thyroid while trying to get preggo with my son Holden, and was put on Levothyroxine; starting at a low dose and working my way up to 0.1mg. I totally still feel like pooh every day and I have absolutely no energy to do anything, not even BD when it comes time to O which can make it pretty hard to TTC. So anyways long story short, my DS had a DR. appt today so I thought why not try and get my DR. to change my meds to THYROID and she went for it .

I'm so excited to try this, in hopes that I can be somewhat normal again. Has anyone or Is anyone on Thyroid?? If so how do you like it??

Hi and welcome! I'm sorry you have not been feeling well! Do you mean Armour Thyroid? If so, yes, I take it, and several ladies on here take it as well, I think. I do like it so much better than Synthroid!! I personally think Armour Thyroid is a much more effect treatment for thryoid problems. I hope you start to feel better on your new meds!

Actually the one here in Canada is called ERFA Thyroid, its very similar to Armour....So Three days on Thyroid and I can tell its working, I don't feel like taking naps during the day .

I'm actually so excited to get AF so I can start TTC!

I'm Stacey, the host here. I've been autoimmune hypothyroidism since 03'. I used to take Levox and Synthroid and hated it too. It did nothing for me. I've been on Armour for almost 3yrs now and love it. GL with TTC!! It's not uncommon to have fertility issues and hypothyroidism. Do you know if yours is autoimmune? They would normally do a TPO test and the presence of any anti-thyroid antibodies and it indicates that it's autoimmune.
