What is your current TSH level for your thyroid?
It was 16 last month and my endocrine dr had me on 50mgs ptu twice a day down to 25mg twice a day. My thyroid was tested in feb13 after the baby died and my thyroid tested normal. August 13 I was tested again and it was 48
but what is your TSH level - because what is important is that the NEW TSH guidelines are 0.5 to 2.5 (the old was 0.5 to 4.5) - so that could make a difference.
Low white counts, if less than 2.5 for the WBC - that should be looked at for such things as lymphoma and leukemia - Unlikely you have it and your blood tests are NORMAL for you - but a Hematologist SHOULD at least look at a Blood smear under a Microscope
And, then if you have not had your Tubes looked at to see if they are still open - a HSG - Hysterosalpingogram should be done
Its at 0.1 which hasnt changed throughout. I get to see my hematologist yearly because through a bone marrow biopsy, the doctor's found out I have 2 separate dna, 15% more fetal blood than I should have and trisomy 8 mosaicism. Nothing they think should have caused problems with the baby who was genetically tested and fine, just me and I knew nothing about this until last year.
0.1 for TSH - that is NOT a good number for your thyroid - it needs to be between 0.5 and 2.5
Sorry just checked my letter of my bloods from dec 2013
Tsh <0 .01> neutrophil 0.7 wbc 2.6 platelets 148 mcv 103.0
TSH is TOO low
that is a concern and needs to be reevaluated
the TSH needs to be between 0.5 and 2.5
My endocrine dr at my hospital hasn't mentioned that this could be a problem, its the t4 which she was looking at and more concerned with
but what is important in pregnancy is the TSH - because this is coming from the pituitary gland - and hence the pituitary gland also controls ovulation, and estrogen levels etc that are produced from the ovary - so TSH is very important
Are you there
Just after my period I started to get a mild fever, chills, swollen painful joints, sweating and just feeling rough. My raynards became worse and had a bit of a red rash over my nose and cheek bones. It lasted a few days then went. I've had this over 10 years and it flares upevery so often, especially around my period and ovulation. I dont know what it is and drsdont either. Could this be affecting my fertility. I was tested for lupus in feb 13 but didnt have any flare ups around that time
yes this could affect your fertility - plus you have have an autoimmune problem since you have TWO autoimmune problems already - your thyroid and Reynaud's - so these are problems that need to be looked at more closely, especially by an ob/gyn - as that is who can treat you - you might need Heparin and Asprin to get pregnant and stay pregnant - and please get that thyroid back to a TSH level between 0.5 and 2.5 - that is what you should really concentrate on.
I wish you well
