I have been diagnosed as being borderline hypothyroid since i first started menstruating but no doctor would ever treat me until I first went to an RE at age 42. Until then I was told it wasn't serious enough to treat. After I went on a low dose of synthroid I felt good for the first time in my life. My levels remained unchanged through 4 years of IVF treatments. After being on Lupron for two weeks and starting to build my lining with estrace I suddenly felt exhausted and my hypothyroid symptoms came back. After testing we found my TSH levels had gone up 7 points. Should I wait to continue the DE cycle? I'm concerned that the levels could affect implantation or cause an early miscarriage as this happened to my closest friend twice before her Hashimoto's thyroiditis was diagnosed and her TSH was even lower than mine. The donor has already started her Lupron and may have even started her stimulating drugs. What should I do? I can't afford another cycle after this one.
