Thread: Thyroid Labs in P2

    Thyroid Labs in P2

    I want to verify that P2 won't impact my thyroid labs is I have blood drawn. My last set of labs I was within the normal range within .5 to 1 point. I'm feeling just awful lately and want to get labs done again, hoping this time I'm finally qualify for medication.

    I just worry HCG will adjust hormones and make me look great on paper while in reality I'm struggling.

    HCG does affect your labs, as thyroid production is stimulated during P2. The recommendation is to wait at least 6 weeks after stopping HCG to have labs drawn.

    You can feel awful even if your labs are in the "normal" range. You might think about seeking out a doctor that will work with you to get your numbers in an optimal range, rather than the normal one.
