Hashimoto's and High FSH
I am desperate for help. I'm only 33 years old. I was pregnant once before but it ended as a partial molar pregnancy. I was put on cancer screening for 6 months and was cleared to "try again" for the child we so deeply want in August. Nothing happened. We went for fertility testing in November and they found I have a TSH of 11.8 and an FSH of 21!
My OB suspected autoimmune. She was right. According to the blood tests, I have autoimmune thyroiditis (even though I have absolutely no symptoms of it.) It seems to do the opposite of the symptoms sometimes. For instance, with hypothyroidism I'm supposed to gain weight easily, however I can eat a healthy diet, high in protein and vegetables, NOT workout at all, and still lose weight! I lost 2.5 lbs since last Tuesday, 5 days ago!).
I am on a high protein and vegetable, gluten free diet now to help the autoimmune disease. I have seen an acupuncturist since September for fertility. I'm drinking Chinese herbal tea 3x a day. I'm also taking wheatgrass pills (can't get fresh wheatgrass shots)- 14 a day in follicular phase and 7 in luteal phase. I use a fertility monitor which has always given me "peak" days and I chart, which always shows a temp rise, although the anxiety and stress of trying to conceive has delayed ovulation a couple times.
And yet, I still can't get pregnant. I don't know what to do! I'm only 33 and I'm being told I'm in premature ovarian failure even though I regularly menstruate (every month) and can show ovulation. Is it true that my eggs are just bad and I should just jump at doing donor eggs now? I don't know what else to do? I've spent so much $ chasing down anyone who can help me. Can you? Please? I'm only 33.
