This systematic review and meta-analysis was conducted to determine whether levothyroxine (LT4) supplementation would improve pregnancy outcomes among infertile women with SCH and/or TAI who underwent in vitro fertilization (IVF) or intracytoplastic sperm injection (ICSI).MethodsWe searched databases of PubMed, EMBASE, Web of Science, Cochrane… CONTINUE READING
