Has anyone had issue conceiving due to hypothyroidism? What was your course of action?

My wife found out she has hypothyroidism when we were TTC. She is on synthroid now but we ended up doing IVF and now have twins.


We did only transfer one embryo. It split. The twins are identical.


I have hypothyroidism (controlled with synthroid) and I do not know if it affected my ability to conceive. I have unexplained female infertility (plenty of good quality eggs and no physical issues but I just don’t get pregnant on my own). I conceived through IVF.


Thank you! I’m on synthroid as well. Seems like there were no other issues with me and my husband. Starting fertility treatment next year due to insurance reasons. Was feeling pretty hopeless, so this at least gives me hope.


I also have hypothyroidism, but as long as you're controlling with medication (synthroid, levothyroxine) then you should be ok. Make sure your doctor is checking your blood often enough and if you feel like something is off, ask them to check.

I have hypothyroidism and just gave birth to a baby boy. My doctor just had to come do lab work regularly and would adjust synthroid as necessary

I’d like a sounding board, specifically on the weight given to PQE outside of law firms.

The only difference is that my colleague is +2/3 PQE. Am I being unreasonable to think we (cont’d)

I need advice. I am a marketing and psych graduate, loved with a passion every second of my career, I know there are a lot of open doors in the future. But trying to look for a job that has marketing or digital marketing is hard. Everyone thrives on experience but no one wants to take a newbie on the field. How do you start? How do I even look for digital marketing jobs? I also own a blog that has been a little dormant but I put it on my resume anyway.

California litigators: we all know that “relevant” discovery standards are really lenient in state court here. How do you handle it when opp counsel is really overreaching, but your primary objection is relevance? We don’t want to fight an expensive, losing discovery fight, and we’ve had to appeal discovery decisions by this particular judge in other cases for this client (and won those appeals). But I’m honestly floored by how much of a reach some of the requests we just received are.

Do employers care where you went to college in industry and public a few years into your career?

I work for a top 15 firm & CPA but did go to a non-target. It's a really small commuter college.

I haven't felt like its impacted me but I can tell you there are very few grads from my college that work at top ten firms. Some firms don't have a single grad from my college based on searching linkedin.

Would industry look at it?

Anyone just so over work while doing all this ivf crap. I am so unmotivated and I don’t know if I hate my job or I am just burnout out from both. It’s been 2 years in this ivf world and I am tired. I wish I didn’t have to work.


Im 29, husband is 28. We just recently got married. Ive been unsure if i want kids my whole life but as time has gone on, ive felt more of the desire. My husband definitely wants at least one child. We both arent “ready” now though. Got my AMH tested - its 2.01 , FSH 5.9. My doctor said its nothing to worry about but i know it goes down with time. She didnt recommend i go to a clinic or freeze my eggs. I dont want to rush into motherhood but i also worry about waiting & the risk that poses


Switched jobs, and my current employer doesn’t cover the fertility clinic or doctor that I have been using for the last 3 years. I feel like there are struggles at every turn in this fertility journey.
What would you do? Switch to a different provider? Or use your existing provider and pay out of pocket?


Give me your best vitamins and supplements for improving egg count and quality. I’m “advanced” (39) with no kids, did egg freezing a few years ago with a pretty low count, and want to try again.

I know you’re not doctors but I think this collective community has so much knowledge. I am already taking iron, fish oil, and D3.

Hi everyone! My company does not provide maternity or any fertility coverage. (Totally awesome, I know). My husband luckily works for Booz and is potentially accepting an offer to Deloitte. We have been going down the process of IUI. Currently we have really good fertility coverage through Booz but I’m nervous with Deloitte it won’t be as good. Does anyone have any insight into Deloitte’s fertility coverage? I’m hopeful about iui but want to be prepared for the costs of IVF. Thanks all


TTC for ~2 years now. We Saw a obgyn and more recently an RE as well. They conducted all possible tests ( semen analysis , HSG , thyroid , ultrasound, genetic screening etc) and there is nothing wrong. At a loss to understand why we haven’t been able to get pregnant. Anyone experienced something similar ? The RE recommends IUI as next step

35 years old going to be 36. Started ttc recently and tracking my ovulation. I noticed my test shows high fertile for 7-8 days straight without any peak in that month. It happened twice in last 6 months. My periods are fairly regular with 26-30 days cycles. my obgyn doesn’t seem to mind it but she suggested to go see a fertility specialist if I want to conceive sooner and don’t want to go traditional way. I am really stressed about it. Am I late for conceive?
