Onderaktiewe Skildklier
Wat se invloed het 'n onderaktiewe skildklier op die vermoë om swanger te raak? 3 Weke gelede ontdek is op behandeling 0.05mg eltroxin hoe lank moet ek op behandeling wees voor getoets kan word of pille suksesvol vir my werk. Het ook ovuleering bloedtoetse geneem, ovuleer glad nie. Moet ek op vrugbaarheids behandeling ook gaan of moet die skildklier probleem eers opgelos word voordat daar met verdere behandeling begin word. Maandstondes is baie ongereeld gyno. sê dis dalk oorsaak van die skildklier. Ons probeer nou al meer as 'n jaar lank vir 'n baba.

This can interfere with ovulation and therfore with your abiltiy to fall pregnant. The pills usually work quite quickly, so you can probably check now whether your thyroid levels are normal. Once they are normal, you can check again whether you are ovulating or not. If the thyroid problem is sorted out, you may not need any fertility treatment.
