    High tpo ab recurrent miscarriage

    Hi there,
    I have multiple miscarriage, and I have high tpo Ab. My tsh was not too bad, last reading was 2.8. My 3rd miscarriage happen when I was already on my levothyroxine 50mg treatment. It happened at around 6+week.
    Just like to see if anyone out there with high Tpo ab has successful pregnancy? Now that I'm considering to go with ivf, but I'm also concerned if my past miscarriages were due to my tpo ab. Will my ivf quest be in vain.

    There is ample evidence in the medical journals of a direct association between TPO antibodies and miscarriage and pre-term delivery, even in women whose thyroid function is so-called "normal". You will need a very smart MD who understands this.

    You may think your TSH isn't "too bad", but it isn't optimum for almost anyone, much less for conception to occur. You should ask for a dose increase that will lower your TSH to no more than 1.3-1.4. This will increase your chances of conceiving.

    Some studies have shown that a daily selenium supplement of 100-200 mcgs a day might lower TPOs by up to 40%. It wouldn't do you harm to give it a try... Also to increase the odds of conception and safe delivery.

    Wishing you all the best.
