    Thanks for the information Ramone. My endo has discussed PTU with me,
    however, he does not want me to get pregnant until this is all dealt
    with. That is hard news to hear after trying for almost two years of
    trying and hoping to be pregnant. I know he is right but it still
    hurts. Do you know of any good reference materials re: pregnancy and
    Graves Disease?

    See you, Diane

    Diane,

    Sorry, I can only tell you how meds have been
    for me and I’m not planning on children yet(!)
    so I can’t tell you much. I know there have been
    some studies done in France, Germany and Austrailia
    about PTU and pregancy but I havn’t seen the
    reports.
    Hope someone else can help you – this bb’s the best!

    Hi Jeanette-
    Thanks for the articles. I will look them up. You have caught me on a
    bad day – feeling very depressed and anxious. Nobody at my workplace
    understands what I am going through. I can’t seem to get all my work
    done so feel like I am letting down my team! Oh well it sounds like
    this is going to be with me for a while so I should to deal with it. So
    sorry for “venting” but I need to get it out.

    Thanks again, Diane
