Re: Please help - pregnancy/thyroid question
I empathize with your devastating loss...I have had several miscarriages myself.
Even though thyroid levels affect pregnancy, it is due to the fact that thyroid imbalance creates other hormone imbalances.
However, there is no proof that your fertility problems are thyroid related.
Different labs have different ranges for normal. Mine says .5 to 5.5 is normal for TSH.
There is no test that proves what range is normal for any individual, we are all different in relation to hormone needs. I need my TSH below one to feel OK.
You may have a normal thyroid level for you, may actually be hyper or hypo, we cannot determine this for you.
I suggest that you go through the symptoms on the checklists on the Information Archive topic and see which ones you have and take the list to a doctor that listens to symptoms not just lab ranges.
Let us know how it goes. TF
