Hashimoto’s is an auto immune disorder of the thyroid where is immune system attacks your own thyroid. The thyroid can become inflamed and the function of your thyroid can be altered.

Because Hashimoto’s creates a dysregulation in the immune system and inflammation it has been possibly linked to implantation failure.

An irregularity in the immune system can have a domino effect when it comes to fertility. IF the body sees an embryo as foreign it is unlikely it will implant and flourish.

One basic thing you can do is to eliminate gluten in the diet which is associated with increasing inflammation in the body especially on women with Hashimoto’s.

However, this may not be enough. Working with women with Hashimoto’s to create a systemic plan to reduce inflammation and dial in thyroid function has helped women conceive and have successful IVF embryo transfers.

First step is to get tested for Hashimoto’s. If you have it could be the road  block to your success. Have your doctor check you for thyroid antibodies to determine if you have Hashimoto’s.

There are many things you can do to normalize thyroid function and regulate immune dysfunction if you have it including acupuncture, herbal and homeopathic medicines and more. Improving your infertility might start with diagnosing and addressing your Hashimoto’s condition.
