hypothyroid
Hi there

I was diagnosed with a hypothyroid- been taking my Eltroxin & the dosage was increased, but the glad is growing bigger & becoming painful.

will they remove it & what would my chances be w.r.t IVF?

Can anyone shed some light?

Thanx
Billy

You would need to consult a physician about the thyroid problem. If your thyroid function is normal afterwards (on or off medication), fertility should not be interfered with.
