What now
Hi there

I went for a general check-up at my gynea about 6 weeks ago he did some test and it came out that I had an under active Thyroid.He prescribed Eltroxine 0,05mg for me.

I have a 9 mth old baby girl and we struggled for 2 1/2 years to fall pregnant with her.We are trying again now and nothing yet.
Do you think the under active Thyroid has something to do with it.

Please help.

It is possible that this might prevent you from falling pregnant. If your levels are normal on treatment, this should no longer interfere with conception.
