Trying to get pregnant, but showing lactation hormones in blood work?
nana_kat posted:
My 30 yr. old daughter is trying to get pregnant, but after 5 months, she is getting discouraged. Her other 2 children were conceived within 2 months of going off birth control. Today she was told that her blood work showed high levels of lactation hormones, but her youngest child is 7 yrs. old. She was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis when she was 15 and when she was 23, she had her thyroid completely removed due to benign growths. What can she do to boost her chances to conceive? She really wants to have 2 more children before she turns 35.
