I know there are other threads about this, but wanted to start my own. I met with a new Endocrinologist this morning (a female). She demanded I stop my Armour (T-4/T-3 combo) medication today and start Synthroid. She said my T-4 (which is incredibly out of whack, even though my T-3 level indicates I'm hyper) needs to be in the right place for me to conceive. This runs somewhat counter to all the accolades I have heard about armour;however, in recent months my periods have whittled down from 3-4 days to 1-2.
We've been TTC since Dec/January. Took two months off/ not trying so hard. She wrote "infertile" on my chart. That sucked.
On the other hand, I've had two miscarriages in the past; maybe she's on to something.
I am starting synthroid in the morning, repeat labs in six weeks, and if things aren't right at that point, go to a Synthroid (T-4 only) /Cytomel (T-3 only) combo. She's also checking all other hormones. I've started Vitamin B complex and D-3.
What do you all think?
in the TWW now, but did not pinpoint O so either 12 or 10 DPO.
