Hi Peter,

Thanks for answering my orignal query last month. I have a follow up question if that is ok.

Just to remind you, I have an underactive thyroid which my GP says is being over controlled while my specialist says if I feel ok then it is being controlled ok. I feel fine but am confused as to what I should do!

What is the effect on IVF of taking too much thyroid hormone (I take thyroxine and armour - natural thryoid)? What happens?

Thanks and hope the move goes well.

Try not to take too much. Thyroid hormone in excess will increase your overall metabolism. This will not really effect IVF but it will not be very comfortable for you!!

Good luck!

Thanks Peter - it sounds as if I should just listen to my specialist and as long as I feel ok it shouldn't affect the IVF.

Cheers - you've put my mind at rest!
