IUD and Thyroid
miche86 posted:
Help me I depressed we are trying to conceive and I had a IUD for fours and 5months. Before I got it taken out I found out I have hypothyorid and I have gained a lot of weight. We have been trying ever since I had the birth control taken out. I know it takes time for the IUD to work its way out of the body. I might be overacting to soon but with my past pregnancy I had no trouble conceiving and not I'm a little worried I wont be able too? Any advice and or tips will help.

Thank you

Do you take anything for your thyroid? I also deal with hypothyroidism and it can be tricky, still figuring that one out myself. I had three healthy pregnancies thankfully in the past but now deal with secondary infertility and it's been 5 years for us... it stinks. Definitely ask about the thyroid with your doctor though.
