hyperthyroidism and getting pregnant

From: sari - 7 years 16 weeks ago

I have hyperthyroidism that was diagnosed in Jannuary this year. I’m taking drugs (thyamazol – one day 5 mg and one day 10 mg alternately) and my current values are:
TSH 0.04 mIJ/L (normal: 0.3-5.0)
FT4 17.17 pmol/L (normal: 10.0-25.0)
FT3 4.3 pmol/L (normal:2.2-6.8)
I want to have a baby and the problem is that I’m already 39 years old and have not much time left for that. Doctors I consulted have different opinions regarding pregnancy in my condition – some say “no” and some say it is OK to get pregnant and take Propylthiouracil instead of thyamazol.
Any personal experiance, advice....?
