: Hi all,
: : I am in early pregnancy (about 4 weeks) I had thyroid problems and a miscarriage on my last pregnancy in October. Today they took my usual tests(thyroid panel and quantitative beta sub) , but also added a new one: progesterone level. Does anyone know what kind of numbers I should be looking for on that one? I heard over 20 is good but would appreciate any info I can collect. Thanks! Jo
: P.S. Anyone take PTU while pregnant? How did that go?
I had Graves' and was on PTU throughout pregnancy. Everyting was great! By the time I gave birth I was on a low dose as my thyroid levels neared normal and by 6 mo postpartum -- the Graves' went into remission? I think pregnancy has protective factors which I believe helped rid me of the disorder. Interestingly, I am now trying to conceive again but through charting my cycle via morning temperatures I am noticing that my progesterone levels may be too low for implantation (I guess it's time for bloodwork). Anyway, hope that helped and made some sense.
