Diagnosed with hashimotos disease, hyperthyroidism, trying to conceive. Treatment?

My husband was recently diagnosed with hashimotos disease. Although this typically is hypothyroidism he is currently in a bout of hyperthyroidism and has been for over a year. Our ent specialist said we don t know when or if he ll ever go hypo. We ve also been trying to get pregnant for about a year and have been unsuccessful. His thyroid levels have been in the normal range for about four months now. Could his thyroid still be the problem? What can we do?

Dear ma'm, hi! welcome to HCM. as you are already facing the normal phase of hashimoto, let me tell you it passes through huper, hypo and then normal or hypo for life. in your husbands case you have gone to normal phase from hyper. so that is good. if he is on treatment, you can slowly taper the treatment. if not on treatment, wait and watch. pregnancy should not be a problem if he is in normal phase now and you too do not have any hormonal issues. regards!
