Hypothyroidism and TTC

I am 27 and my husband and I are TTC. I have been off the pill for 1 year, but we didn't start TTC until July. For the 1st 4 months of 2011, my periods were 30 days apart. Then in June I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and was put on 25mg of Thyroxine. Since then, my periods have been 45 days apart. I have only been charting for 1 full cycle and it shows that I ovulate around day 24 which implies that I have an extra long Luteal phase. Other than the fact that I appear to ovulate less often than someone with a 28 day cycle, is this going to make it more difficult to conceive? Is there anything else I can do?

I have known a few people with hypothyroidism who haven't had any issues getting pregnant (my mom included). However none of them have had their cycles get longer because of the medications. I would suggest talking with your doctor. It seems like your cycles were fine until you started Thyroxine, and in that case, maybe there is something else they can put you on for the hypothyroidism. Or maybe they can put you on something to try to get your cycle more regulated.
