    Hi nazee, normally any endocrynologist will work together with the gynaec while adivising medicines. So you talk to your endocrynologist. If both the doctors work from same hospital or clinic it will be better as co-oridnation will be there between them. Don't get panic. Everything will go well. don't stop asking questions to your doctor till you get clear with the type of treatment they are going to give you. Lots of baby dust to you. Best wishes.

    Dear Nazee, Don't worry. It's not that difficult. What is your TSH level? Most of the doctors say not to have tablets for Hypothyroid, and just advice them to watch on their diet and exercise more. But if you are trying to conceive, you must take thyroxine. Still that depends on your TSH level. As Mira said, consult Endocrynologist, or another Gynae, they will advice to take blood test and prescribe accordingly.

    My TSH level was 5.1 and my doctor adviced it is must I have to be on thyroxine. Now it is dropped to 2.17. I am seeing great differences after taking the tablets. Earlier, I used to feel cold all the time, and I would be tired/exhausted often. Now I am much more active. I am taking 75mcg. My gynae adviced me to maintain the TSH level from 1-2. But women have conceived with more TSH level too. So you needn't worry much.

    Good Luck.

    Hi,

    I am also suffering from both thyroid and PCOD. I was diagnosed 6 months back and I am taking eltroxin 10 mg and metformin 850 mg. My TSH level is now normal, but still my periods is irregular. Hence I am advised to take Krimson 35 to regularise my periods. Since I need to conceive soon, is it ok to ask my doctor to give me some hormone tablets like clomid which induces ovulation.. Need suggestions pls..

    Regards,
    Priya

    priyaj1986, A good doctor knows what should be prescribed to you. Harmones are critical things which should be taken only under prescription. So go as per what doctor prescribes you. If you are not satisfied with the doctor to whom you are showing now, you may better take second opinion from another experienced one. But never suggest to doctor or take anything on your own. Don't worry. Lots of baby dust to you. Best wishes.

    Hypothyroidism [underactive thyroid gland] is the most common thyroid disorder in pregnant women. Treating any form of thyroid during pregnancy requires careful monitoring by both the gynae and the endocrinologist. There are usually no complications if u r levels r monitored closely. The drugs given r quite safe. Pregnant women suffering fm hyperthyroidism [overactive thyroid gland], will be given anti-thyroid drugs n occasionally given supplements of thyroxin as well. After birth, the baby will usually be monitored for thyroid levels.

    Any form of untreated thyroidism can lead to problems in conceiving, higher chance of miscarriage or still births.

    Both kinds of thyroidism will affect the menstrual periods - the periods will be irregular, heavy or scanty depending on hypo or hyper.

    So, u just need to go to a good gynae n endocrinologist. It is always better to hv both of them in the same hospital in case of any emergencies during labour or delivery. You need to take yr meds religiously n follow yr docs advice and dont be shy of clearing yr doubts with yr doc - take second opinion if u r not satisfied. If u follow the above n keep smiling during pregnancy - u will do just fine !!

    love,
    kylie

    Are medicines really necessary? Can yoga, proper diet help reduce weight & regularize the hormones?

    Hypothyroidism in pregnancy or in pts trying to conceive has to be treated. According to AACE(american association of clinical endocrinologists) guidelines your dose has to be adjusted so that the TSH level is <2.5 if you are planning to be pregnant or pregnant. If you have thyroid auto-immunity your TSh has to be closely monitored during pregnancy.

    Your hyperthyroidism from what I read from your post is prodably becos of the thyroid hormone replacement being little high. So it is ok to stay off med and watch.

    If you have hyperthyroidism in pregnancy then it is usually treated with medications too. There are pregnancy specific thyroid hormone ranges. Discuss with endocrinologist.

    When you become pregnant they will monitor your thsh and Ft4 levels. The baby depends on your thyroid till it is 18-20 wks. So if you are thinking of not taking meds and trying home remedies is not advisable. If you plan to do so talk to your doctor.

    Hope this helps
    :thumbsup
