How is infertility treated in women with hypothyroidism?

By Laura García de Miguel.
Last Update: 06/11/2019

Women who have hypothyroidism suffer from a slowdown in the production of hormones by the thyroid gland.

In these women, it is necessary, regardless of the technique used (fertilization in vitro, ovodonation), to correct with thyroid hormone (oral tablets) until a good TSH is obtained, below 2.5 (thyroid hormone) to guarantee that the implantation can be produced without problems.

This treatment will continue until pregnancy and it is important to make periodic controls with the endocrinologist to evaluate if it is necessary to increase or decrease the doses of the treatment.
