The Link Between Thyroid Dysfunction and Fertility
By Sarah Clark: Infertility Conqueror, Author, and Fertility Coach (Functional Medicine & Get Pregnant)
Janie Bowthorpe joins us today as we are digging into the connection between the thyroid and fertility. For 20 years, Janie A. Bowthorpe suffered at the hands of doctors. Why? They failed to see the connection between her chronic and debilitating symptoms and forcing her body to live for conversion alone, aka T4-only like Synthroid. The examining room responses were always along the lines of “You are normal” and “It’s something else besides your thyroid”. All the latter meant money down the drain, frustrating and false pronouncements by doctors, painful tests, dead ends, and the dark realization she would finally have to apply for Social Security Disability. But Bowthorpe proved them all wrong in 2002. She switched to Natural Desiccated Thyroid, raised and found her optimal amount, and every single debilitating symptom went completely away. That change spurred her to create the movement later called Stop the Thyroid Madness, aka STTM. What makes the Stop the Thyroid Madness movement different from other websites and books? It's near totally about 16 years of reported patient experiences in getting well, and the wisdom gained from those experiences. The website is stopthethyroidmadness.com plus a facebook page of the same name. And there are also two books--the most widely read thyroid books on the market for years: the revised Stop the Thyroid Madness: A Patient Revolution Against Decades of Inferior Thyroid Treatment (aka STTM I), and also Stop the Thyroid Madness II: How Thyroid Experts are Challenging Ineffective Treatments and Improving the Lives of Patients (aka STTM II).
