Once her thyroid is fixed, she should able to get pregnant, I'm sure. It can't that long to fix a thyroid, can it? Okay, I just googled "hyperactive thyroid," and it said, "Hormonal imbalance triggers hypothyroidism in women." I am having some health issues (am desperately trying to self-diagnose!), and WE are our best advocates - NOT our doctors!! Have your friend tell her doctor she wants to be tested for a hormonal imbalance! That could also affect fertility. One more thought - since she will be having her blood drawn again for hormonal imbalance, she should also request bloodwork for a Celiac panel. These tests measure the immune system’s response to gluten in the food you eat. These are the Celiac panel tests:
tTG-IgA or tissue transglutaminase-IgA
AGA-IgG or Antigliadin IgG
AGA-IgA or Antigliadin IGA
The presence of tTG antibodies is highly suggestive of Celiac Disease, while AGA can be elevated also in cases of wheat allergy.
I am suggesting a Celiac panel, b/c if your friend has Celiac Disease (or even a problem with gluten sensitivity), that can also affect her fertility. Have her google symptoms of hormonal imbalance in women, and symptoms of gluten sensitivity/Celiac in women. She needs to be her own, proactive advocate and do her own research and request a lot of blood testing, because her doctor is not going to think of all of these things! Best of luck to your friend!
One more thought - if your friend discovers she does have symptoms of a gluten problem in women, and her bloodwork comes back negative - it is often a false negative. My bloodwork for gluten testing came back negative, so I decided to take it a step further and have my stool analyzed (www.enterolab.com). Stool analysis is more sensitive/accurate than bloodwork. Some people/doctors will say that an endoscopy is the most accurate, but I heard that a stool analysis is the most accurate.
