In brief: No

Need to know how to interpret labs when someone is on hormones.
It's a test tube issue (lab altercation) not a human thyroid change.

In brief: No the IVF meds

should not impact your thyroid function.
You may have an underlying thyroid issue, which is quite common. You ideally want your TSH to be less than 2.5.
