Pregnant with hashimoto’s


Hi everyone. Okay so my question is how many of you ladies have had trouble getting pregnant with hashimotos. If you had problems what helped you conceive? My husband and i have been ttc for over 5 years and I think it’s because my hypothyroidism and hashimotos. I’m getting discouraged but my Dr doesn’t seem like it’s that bad. Thanks!

  1. Try to get a prescription for metformin.Research it,it’s worth a try.

  2. My dr actually put me on that 500mg haven’t started it yet.

  3. Jacqueline can i ask you what metformin does? I know it will help lower my testosterone levels but will it help my thyroid at all?

  4. Your levels need to be under 2.5 I think. I have had the same issue as you and miscarriage cause of it. If your levels aren’t that or under you most likely won’t get pregnant and if you do high chance to mc. That’s what I have been told. Good luck to us both.

  5. They change your medication until it shows it’s under. I don’t know what metformin is. I’m on levothyroxine .125mg

  6. I am so scared that my daughters (age 8 & 13) might have it too. I got diagnosed in November with Hashi’s. So to even think of having another child makes me shiver… Question: my family doesn’t have a history of thyroid issues, although my mom got diagnosed of Diabetes type 2 at 55. Does it mean there is still chance that my girls wont have it?

  7. Metformin and clomid

  8. Have husband checked first. Don’t assume it’s your fault. I had 4 children.

  9. I have pcos…but then i was just diagnosed with hashi after years of suffering…wondering if they both did not play a part in it

  10. I have had 4 miscarriages. Trying to get my Tsh levels down to 2 before trying again. Good luck

  11. I had no problem getting pregnant. All I had to do was quit the pill for 2 weeks and baam. All three times. Back then the BC pills were real strong too. I also only had one fillipian tube! (sp)


    I had three healthy children while having H and not being diagnosed. Get another doctor if you don’t like his diagnosis. After being diagnosed I had one more healthy child who is what every parent would want. ALL of my children are beautiful, healthy, and very intelligent.

  12. I had issues also until my Dr added cytomel … Got pregnant maybe 2 months after starting it!
