I’m 16 years old. Last year and this year I have had severe symptoms of both hypo and hyperthyroidism. (In case you’re wondering, it is possible to have both of those.) I am going to the doctor on Tuesday to get blood drawn and be tested. I was supposed to be tested last year, but the test was lost.
I was doing some research on these conditions and found out that infertility and fertility problems (including miscarriage) are possible symptoms. My biggest fear in life is being infertile.
I’m wondering how these thyroid conditions affect fertility. Even if you have the conditions, is it possible to treat them and be fertile? I’ll ask my doctor these questions as well, but I’m really freaking out right now and I would love some answers. Thank you.
