We’re digging into how the thyroid impact fertility.
For years I was told my thyroid was “normal”… but my hair was falling out in chunks, my skin looked like a lizard and I had cold feet and hands.
Not until I pushed my doctor to look beyond the TSH did my symptoms begin to improve.
Looking only at the TSH does not give us the whole picture.
If you are struggling to conceive or if you have an ovulation disorder, irregular menstrual cycle, recurrent miscarriage optimizing your thyroid is key.
And yes thyroid medication can be part of the solution but when used alone it is simply a band-aid solution and may not lead to pregnancy success.
I’m here to tell you that medical gaslighting is real. You know your body. Be your own advocate. Get a second opinion. Dig deeper.
Today I’m excited to welcome leading Functional Medicine expert Dr. Amie Hornaman, The Thyroid Fixer.
In this episode you’ll learn:
1) Why thyroid health is important for someone who is struggling with infertility and miscarriage.
2) The factors that inhibit thyroid health and what you can do to minimize your risk.
3) Why we need to look at the full thyroid panel. Why doctors often only look at TSH and claim it is “normal”.
4) The thyroid numbers and levels that are important to look at when you are TTC.
5) What thyroid antibodies really mean for your health and fertility.
6) Which medications can be helpful for thyroid dysfunction and how we can optimize thyroid health so we can improve pregnancy success.

However, to reassure you – on this call we won’t be digging into the trauma associated with infertility/miscarriage/loss – rather we are focused on solutions and an ACTION PLAN as to how our Fab Fertile Method can help you get pregnant naturally.
