Get it normalized: Hypothyroidism is very detrimental to the pregnancy and development of the fetus. Get this normalized as soon as you can. Fortunately, with the right treatment, it could be normal in a few months. See a specialist if needed. Good luck. ...Read more

Could an elevation in one's TSH level be indicative of hyper/hypo thyroidism?

Hypothyroidism: When the thyroid makes too little hormone (t4 and t3), the pituitary makes more TSH to try to compensate. So an elevated TSH is indicative of a thyroid that has failed or is failing, and you may need to take levothyroxine. See your doctor. ...Read more

Even if you have autoimmune thyroid disease, all you will need is to properly manage it during pregnancy to be ok. ...Read more

Possibly.: If you haven't done a urine pregnancy test, that's the first step. If it's negative, but you still suspect pregnancy, your doctor can order a "serum beta HCG" which may pick up the pregnancy hormone in the unlikely event that the urine test was wrong. If the serum test is negative, make an appointment with your Gyno to find out why you aren't cycling. I wish you the best. ...Read more

Needs investigating: You have gone >12 months without conceiving. Verify that you are not using any spermicides in lubes, that you are having regular menses every 25-30 days, that you are having sex during the fertile period about two weeks before your menses. If all checks out, see your Ob/Gyn for more in depth workup. ...Read more
