Hmm... I had one miscarriage, one child at 42, and another miscarriage.
I always thought it was from fibroids. I wonder if it could have been from
hypo?

I have PCOS and Hashimotos. I have three live children and have had one miscarriage. I was unable to concieve my first because of untreated PCOS, but after treatment, the others came like clockwork...in fact, the last is a bit of a unasked for, but definite blessing! I agree it would have more to do with the PCOS.

The difficulties are not stemming from her treated hashi's...they would be coming from her PCOS! That makes fertility difficult. I know.....I had both, was being treated for thyroid (albeit undertreated), but lost 7 babies before they determined I had defective luteal phase during pregnancy as a result of PCOS. Basically what that means is that the your body is supposed to produce progesterone until the placenta is large enough on it's own.....but mine didn't bother! Progesterone will maintain the pregnancy in the body. This is overly simplified as it needs more but you get the drift.

Ahh, ok. From what she told me, her doctor made it sound like her having a child with Hashimoto's was nearly impossible. I'm guessing now he/she probably meant that on top of everything else, it would be very difficult. Thanks guys, it'll be nice to give her some hope. :)

I was untreated for thyroid during my childbearing years and it came to light later that I had Hashimoto's. I ended up having three miscarriages, losing one son(full term) to a minor birth defect that created multiple other major problems, and two healthy full term children, a boy and a girl.

My mom has Hashi's and had 4 children.
90% of thyroid dysfunction is autoimmune, Hashi's is the Hypothyroid side of the Thyroid Disorders coin. The other side is Graves.

So Hashi's alone will not keep one from having children... but it can be a complicating factor.

That your friend can't get pregnant is actually a good thing, bc right now her body is having problems regulating itself, no less carrying a fetus to term.

So my advice to your friend would be to concentrate on healing her self first before attempting a high risk pregnancy.

Alternately there is surrogate birth and adoption.

Hey guys, this is for my best friend. I don't think she has a SP account anymore so I figured I'd ask some questions for her.

She's been hypothyroid for a while, and recently went through her first round of in-vitro fertilization. She also has PCOS, which her and her husband knew would make having kids difficult. After the IVF failed, a slew of tests were done. It turns out she has Hashimoto's, so the doctors think her body would believe a fetus is a foreign object and attack it, as it does with her thyroid.

Anyone here have Hashimoto's, or have some tips for her? Anything she might not think of to ask her doctors? Has anyone with Hashimoto's successfully had a healthy child?

Thanks, as always!

Lauren
