My DH was diagnosed with hypothyroidism a year ago. He’s been on medication for it ever since. We’ve been ttc since April without any luck. I’ve only had 4 cycles though and was recently diagnosed with pcos, so obviously that’s a huge factor. My doctor also sent DH to get an SA done and we’re currently waiting for the results. I’m terrified to find out the results though because of him having hypothyroidism. Does anyone else have a DH with hypothyroidism and normal SA results? I’m trying to stay positive.

@sheclicksherheels: My DH doesn’t have it, but I do. I was VERY worried about the possibility of having troubles TTC but we succeeded first try!
It is very likely he will be fine, especially if he doesn’t have a normal SA this time once they adjust his meds and he gets balanced his next SA will probably be just great!
My thoughts are with you!

DH does not have it, but I do. And I also was very worried about how it would affect our chances TTC — and we succeeded on the second try. I’m just about 30 weeks now. To be honest, I’m not sure about the differences in how it affects men vs. women when it comes to fertility, but fingers crossed that it all works out for you guys!
I will be thinking lots of good thoughts for you, and sending positive vibes your way! Here’s hoping his SA comes back strong and that you and your doctor are able to successfully manage your PCOS!
BABY DUST! <3

I don’t have a thyroid as of three years ago haha so i think i count! My Endo said that as long as the tsh levels are in the normal range, whether by pill or naturally, it shouldn’t be a problem. Granted, I’m not a guy but i figure it’a probably similar.

I have hashis Which is the same thing basically and id agree that as long as the TSH levels are normal on medication he should be okay. My endo had only mentioned that if I become pregnant to contact her immediately. She didn’t say it would be hard! I read a lot into it when I first got diagnosed and going gluten free sometimes alleviates symptoms. He could try that!
