Dear Dr. Sher,
I’ve been following your comments for years. Thanks for the info. on 2 shots of Ovidrel. I’m interested in what you say here about Hoshimoto’s and what you call “Immunologic Implantation Dysfunction.” You mention that 50% of women (with or without Hoshimoto’s/full-blown hypothyroidism) will have this IDD due to the thyroid anti-bodies. Is this your hypothesis or is this based on a study you have done or data that you are aware of? Do you have any material I could see apart from this one case? How did you arrive at the 50%? Is speculative wisdom from what you’ve witnessed at your own practice? I’m a huge admirer, but I’m honestly confused as to where this information is coming from. Would love to know! Many thanks, Katharine
