PCOS and Hyperthyroidism

Hello Doctor,
I am 24 years old and just got married(4 months before) and I am trying to conceive now. I was diagonised with PCOD on 2009 August. I was initally asked to take regestron( 6 tabs on 3 days)to get my periods.After which i was advised to take Diane-35 to get my periods regularly.I was continuing with Diane 35 till August 2011, and my periods was regular.On sept 2011, i got married, and i was given duphaston as I am trying to conceive.Now I am diagonised with hyperthyroidism (7.95 throid level), and was asked to stop duphaston, and to take thyronorm for 3 months.My doctor told me that my periods may get regular if i continue with thyronorm. Could you please advice on this, as I am also trying to conceive now?
Please reply, as this is very urgent.
Regards,
Danya

Hi Danya,

I am 26 years old, and have had two beautiful daughters from the age of 21. I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism in August 2011. I told my doctor a month ago that my husband and I are ready to have another baby, and I know from having this disease it can make concieving more difficult than normal due to irregular periods etc. He reccommended that I stay on my medication of carbimazole for a year before looking into Iodine treatment, and then look at concieving, however if I did concieve we would deal with the matter when it arose. So there is a slight possibilty of concieving with this disease, however it is a very fragile process with having to keep hormone levels right when carrying baby as it can be quite dangerous and possibilities of losing the foetus in early stages is high. I want number 3 baby now, so I am just working on taking my medication properly and managing my hormone levels right to get my periods going regularly again. I will co-operate with my doctor through this process to ensure everything goes accordingly to plan, and hopefully produce a healthy baby. So all I can say for now, is get your hormone levels right first and manage it, work in collaboration with your doc through this process for insurance! Goodluck!!!
