    Hi Everyone,
    I have been told recently that I have hypothyroidism, and I have been doing alot of research trying to find answer's to it all. I am 24 years old newly married and my husband and I have been actively trying to get pregnant since November 2011, and I have read in multiple places that this could cause infertility and I am just hoping being on .75mg of Synthroid this can help us with the process of getting pregnant. The funny thing is it didnt mess with my periods really that much at all so I am worried that maybe this won't change why I am not getting pregnant. I had alot of the other symptoms hair loss, fatigue, muscle cramps but what made me contact my doctor was my depression/moodiness and the horrible anxiety I was having. I guess I am looking for any clarification from anyone that knows what I am going through.

    Thanks
    Jenn

    Yes this can effect fertility. Encourage you to talk this over with OB/GYN to gain more insight.
