Customer Question

I am trying to get pregnant and went to see a specialist. I also have irregular period ands fibroids. I have had two miscarriages. I am going to a great doctor who checks everything possible. The nurse called and left me a message that one of the ratios a t3 rt3 ratio is only a 5.2 and she said it should be a 10. She left a message that I will need to take my temperature and pulse 4 times a day for 10 days plus mark any symptoms I am having. Then send that information into the doctor for him to review. Could this be the reason for my weight gain and my miscarriages, irregular periods? She said they would send more info in the mail. But, I would like to know more, please!
