Hi! I am 28 .Have gone through my Ist IVF cycle in FEB.Before starting it some basic tests are done during which my hypothyroididm condition is revealed which is not there six months back in my routine checkup tests.
Now,coming to point my gynaec has seen my tsh levels and said no need to worry as Variability in TSH levels are very very minor,then started thyroxine 25.But,during the IVF course i hav to take so many hormonal injections due to which my TSh level has shoot up,i hv gained wait and all the conditions of hypo thyroid is there.Ist IVF was a great disapoointment too.

Now ,as i am preparing for my IInd IVF cycle I am afraid that my Hypothyroid condition will get worse then ever.

My gynaec is acting cool. But ,I have a strong belief that this hormonal tretament is creating havoc with my thyroid condition .

My question is am i right in believing this or i am just being too much overreacting to corelate my thyroid condition with my hormonal treatment.

Hello mauni,In answer to your question above, I would see an endocrinologist about the thyroid function to be certain you are being treated properly. More than your TSH level should be tested to determine whether or not you are on the right medication and/or dosage. I have Hashimoto's Disease (thyroid function) ... and it took awhile to get my diagnosis because I was initially treated only for hypothyroidism. With Hashimoto's, you can slide from one end of the spectrum to the other ... my TSH levels changed as well from hypo to hyper-hypo-hyper .... Needless to say, I was miserable! It was not until I saw my endocrinologist and got my diagnosis of Hashimoto's that these levels finally got balanced out and stayed stable. As for hormonal treatment ... it would seem to me that it could very well be a factor, especially since the thyroid gland produces hormones. So, again, I suggest you see an endocrinologist and he/she can make that determination. Either way, having a thyroid issue at all ... you should be under the care of an endocrinologist for your thyroid, especially at this time (during your hormone treatments), to get the best treatment for your thyroid function. Best of luck to you!
