hyperactive thyroid and fertility
I have had an overactive thyroid for about 4 years now and have been on treatment for 2 years My medication is now at the right level - neomercazole x 6 daily - and my levels are becoming normal but my periods are irregural and my GP has told me I will have difficulty conceiving. I do not want to get pregnant for at leat 2 years but would like to know sooner than later what my chances are. How can I find this out?

Have a blood test to see if you are ovulating.
