On thyroxine. Recurrent miscarriages. Should I increase the medication dosage?

Hi, I m on 75mg of thyroxine and have had 5 recurrent miscarriages so decided to go back on the mini pill for a while as I have 2 boxes of noriday in my cupboard still from when I was on it back in 2011! Should I increase my dose in thyroxine. I moved to Essex back in 2010 and I don t trust the doctors here as I m not seen as a patient just a number. I ve been let down by them and just hate going to them as they don t give proper advise. Please help.

hi.. thanks for using HCM..
you have hypothyriodism and taking thyroxin 75Micrograms..
you have recurrent miscarriages.. that could be due to hypothyriodism..
get one thyriod profile done and see the endocrinologist for adjusting the dose required..
dont self medicate..
then see your obstetrician for testing for other probable causes for early miscarriages..
all the very best..
