I : I wanted to start by reassuring you that hyperthyroidism is very treatable! the first step will be for your endocrinologist to determine the underlying cause of your hyperthyroidism. There are 3 main causes of hyperthyroidism: graves' disease, nodular goiter, or thyroiditis. The way to determine the type of hyperthyroidism you have is by checking a thyroid scan. Sometimes an additional blood test (called "tsi" -- looking for a specific type of thyroid antibody) can be helpful as well. There is a medication that can treat your hyperthyroidism that is well tolerated and generally considered to be safe when trying to conceive. Once your thyroid levels have normalized, you will have normal fertility so do not worry. It is very important for your health and the health of the baby to have normal thyroid levels when you conceive and during your pregnancy so you do want to be monitored carefully in the upcoming months. This is very treatable and would expect you'll do beautifully with appropriate therapy. Best wishes. ...Read more
