Is there anyone that has a thyroid condition and has had children ?

I have an underactive thyroid . I just read that women with thyroid condtions have lower fertility levels. I have been trying for two years off and on to get pregnant . So naturally this is really upsetting me. I would really like to hear some success stories please. Thank-you

    I have an underactive thyroid condition, but am having my third child in 7 weeks. You know what I did to get pregnant? I tried not to. LOL! Good luck. If it is a huge problem, go see your doctor and tell them u want to get pregnant, but r having problems.

    You are right. With a thyroid conditon it is harder to concieve. But it is possible. I know a lady who has had 5 miscarriages, but has 3 wonderful healthy daughters also. Don’t give up hope and make sure you take your medicine and keep up your blood work, it is a condition you can live with but you have to take care of. And good luck. You can still get pregnant.

    my mother in law has an underactive thyroid and she had 3 boys.. (one set of twins even!) and was not on any type of fertility treatment… hope that gives you some hope… you can always go to a fertility clinic if you want… good luck

    I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and am currently taking Synthroid. I was very pessimistic that my husband and I would ever conceive because I also have PCOS. Well the darndest thing happened last week. I went to see my GYN cuz I was having cramping for over a week and my cycle(which has never been regular) still hadn’t shown up and lo and behold she sends me tho the lab to have a serum preg test dun. I’m thinking thats jus a precaution b4 she gives me Provera to jump start my cycle like many other times B4. She calls me back and tells me that its + and we’re pregnant now! So hang in there it wil happen when you least expect it. Good Luck!!!!
