 mounam - Tue Oct 27, 2009 11:59 am

I am married on Jan 2008.First year of marriage we planned like we don't want kids.But i didnt took any medicines for that.
after that when we were trying to get preganant it was not happening.So we consulted a gynecologist and found out that i am having problems of thyroid and polysystic ovaries.
I am taking medicine for thyroid and not for polycystic ovaries.
when i checked the TSH value for thyroid during the month of July it was .85uI/mL.
Am still continuing the medicine.

Please help me with an answer

User avatar Hello,
It is true you need to be patient. Continue to take your thyroid medication and have your levels checked as recommended by your doctor. Sometimes this alone will result in conception but in some cases the PCOS is treated and ovlulation stimulators can be prescribed to assist with achieving pregnancy. Trying on your own for a while is a good idea unless you are reaching an age where you are worried you will not become pregnant if you wait.

Good luck.
