Question: im XXXXXXX 30yrs/female trying to conceive for the past 4 months.Got a preconception screen done .It indicated TSH value 5.83 1st time and during the second blood test ,tsh value became 5.22.So i went to an endocrynologist and he prescribed me thyronorm tablet 50mg to be taken daily before breakfast for 30 days and asked me to do a blood test again after 1 month. Now my query is: can i still try to conceive while taking this tablet.

Brief Answer: Good Chances Detailed Answer: Hi, Your chances of conception increased when you get treated for hypothyroidism. Hence Go ahead and try for pregnancy. Please let me know semen analysis of your husband and any other investigations you have done. Regards, Dr. Mahesh Koregol IVF & Infertility Specialist

no other investigations were done. Another question which i wanted to ask is that I heard from a relative(who is a doc) that taking 50 mg may decrease your bone density and stuff like that, is that true? Also, should i take these tablets life long and not just for 1 month?

Brief Answer: not much Detailed Answer: Hi, your TSH levels are less than 6 which means they are borderline high only. It might get corrected by it self. 25 mg could be enough. Anyway you repeat it after one month and then discuss with endocrinologist whether you can stop it slowly. But if its high again you may need to continue medicines life long. It does decrease bone density. But not very much. Don't worry about it. Regards

My husband has been on Treatment to raise his T levels. First he used Testim gel for several months, now he is using injections, which he gives himself at home. My concern is we would like to conceive, and we know these treatments can lower sperm count. He is reluctant to do a Semen analysis, but I think it may be the only way to know if conception is possible. The Urologist he is using has suggested it, and also wants him to start HCG which can raise his sperm count. All very confusing, can you enlighten me?
