quick update

I finally got my lab work back and everything came back great except my thyroid antibodies (a good indicator for Hoshimotos disease) and my FSH and LH were high ( a good indicator for PCOS).....looks like this whole baby making thing is gonna be harder than I thought..... My Endocrinologist is putting me on 75mg of Synthroid and I go back i 6 weeks to have my levels checked again.


 


 


in the mean time ppl are popping up pregnant ALL OVER THE DARN PLACE!!!!GRRR!

Take a deep breath!  Ask if they can retest your FSH and LH when you get your TSH rechecked.  Also, what cycle day did they test on and what level was your FSH/LH at?  (If you don't mind sharing?)


Also, it is possible that it will take some time to get your Synthroid level right - mine was too high when it was first prescribed and my recheck helped my doctor get it right.  My husband's was too low at first....I am willing to bet that in about a week you will start to feel so much better when you didn't even know you were not okay =)

Wow, yeah, that is high even for CD14.  I wouldn't stress about it yet, first see if the Synthroid gets your body back in line and your FSH/LH levels come back down to normal.  FX that your 6 week tests go better! =)

Thinking of you often, and sending you tons of prayers and baby dust.  I agree with youandme, now you know what's happening and so you go from there. Got to take care of you first, FX for your 6 week appointment!
