    Question Can you get pregnant if you have hypo?????

    Hi, my dh and I have been ttc for a long time now, have been to specialists, just found out that I am hypo. Just wondering if anyone has had a baby after medication for hypo.

    Yes, you can get pregnant if you are hypo. It is very important to get treatment and optimized before getting pregnant as untreated hypothyroidism can cause an increase in miscarriage or issues with the baby. Also important to be closely monitored while pregnant.

    I've read from a couple different sources that years ago it was standard treatment for fertility clinics to prescribe Synthroid to all their patients.

    My babies were born before I went hypo. I also have a hypo friend who is ready to try and conceive. I wish the best of luck to you!

    I have had hypothyroidism for years and I can tell you it is quite possible to become pregnant. I was told after my first born that without certain hormone injections, my chances were slim or none.
    Hypothyroidism was causing me all kinds of problems including (according to the experts) not to ovulate regularly and possibly start early menopause. I discontinued the injections when I found out there was an increased chance of birth defects. But within a few months, I was pregnant again. I became pregnant 4 more times, but lost 2 pregnancies early.
    I agree with Heckofagal about getting your hypothyroidism in check and having your body as prepared as possible before conceiving.
    Best wishes to you and your husband.

    I was officially diagnosed hypo within 6 wks of having my 4th child, I was put on .25 mcg of synthroid and remained on that dose for almost 18 yrs. I had 2 more children while still on the synthroid and did not have any problems. number 5 was in 1994 and number 6 was a surprise in 2003 lol. My doc back then kept my tsh at around a 1 and I did not have any problems with my pregnancy.

    I'm glad to read these older posts. Anyone recently become prego after finding out they were hypo? I got pregnant very quickly after going off the BC. My DD is almost 2 now and we have discussed TTC. But I just found out I am hypo as of last week. The "infertility" posts I've read have scared me. Will we have trouble if we try again? The first time was a breeze. I was blessed!
