Hello ma'm, Thanks for appproaching healthcare magic team. I understand your concern. Thyroid function could be best assessed by TSH, free T3 and free T4 or else a simple TSH is sufficient. Do not depend on total T4 as it depends on the protein content in the blood. Normal TSH value is below 5.5 and for pregnancy we take a borderline of 4.5. Hence your TSH is normal. There is nothing to worry about your thyroid now. You can have a repeat TSH after 3 cycles if required. There are several reasons for recurrent pregnancy loss. Apart from blood screening ultrasound can detect your reproductive tract abnormalities. As you haven't mentioned about your husband's sperm count, i'm not sure whether everything could be normal. Please get back for further queries. Thank you and best regards.
