IVF drugs cause Hyperthyroid?

KAW - October 16

Hi,
I was preparing to start my 4th IVF and they did blood work and found that I'm having hyperthyroid issues (seeing an endo next week). Anyway, I was wondering if all of the drugs I've taken the last year and a half could have impacted my thyroid function. Thank you for your thoughts. KAW

No, medications you used for IVF should not effect thyroid function.
Good luck.

That is so weird...your message could have come from me! I was about to have my 4th IVF transfer, and they cancelled the cycle when they discovered I had developed hyperthyroid issues too. I have seen an endo, and I'm scheduled for a thyroid scan (number 2--the first one didn't work b/c they think the IVF drugs blocked the thyroid from uptaking the radioactive iodine). I truly believe that these meds have something to do with it.
