: : : If you have hyperthyroidism can you still be bear a child??? I've been trying to have a baby for 5 months now and it doesnt happen. I'm thinking its because i have hyperthyroidism. I'm hopeless already!!!! Do women with hyperthyroid still have babies??? Please enlgihten me! thanks!

: : Have you stablized your TSH and T4 levels and are you ovulating? I was on PTU but not stable and not ovulating. You can go the basil route or they have those one step test to see if you are ovulating. I tried for 3 years then had my throid removed and stabilized my levels and concived in 5 mo. Most will say surgery is too radical and to go with RAI. That's up to you and your doctor to find the best solution. I wish you the best of luck.

: Hi Susan! i just had a bloodtest yesterday so ill know soon if my levels are normal. dont women ovulate every month? That's why we have periods? Oh no! I dont know a thing! our baby making process is put on hold for now cause my man is away. anyways, i had RAI but im still hyper! im working on making my tsh and t4 normal! thanks!

Well the sad fact is that you still have your period even though you may not be ovulating. See you OB/GYN and he can help you establish if you are ovulating. I would find a good OB and work with him and your internest/endocinologist.

I have heard that some RAI if they don't remove/ kill enough tissue shows little or no change in the troubled thyroid. This is not commmon but can happen. If you ask Lynn W (if you haven't yet) she'll be able to tell you how long it took her to go Hypo after RAI. Also, Remember that you need to wait a while before you try to conceive after RAI. About 11 mo. Keep your eyes on the prizes as they say-I love my kids. Susan
