First what most people do not understand is that you need to take the Vitamin D FOREVER. Your body constantly uses up Vitamin D and it needs to be replaced. So what you needed after taking the 8 weeks of Lumia was a maintenance dose or else your levels just plummet again.
Second your original level of 6 (hopefully measured as ng/ml) was extremely low. In this range you probably have/had Osteomalacia which is adult ricketts. You made it to a level of 30 (ng/ml?) which is the bottom of the range. Here at the Vitamin D Council we believe in maintaining a “healthy” level of 50ng/ml. So you did not make it to the healthy level. Your symptoms are from this deficiency.
You are having problems conceiving because your Vitamin D level is not high enough. Vitamin D deficiency has A LOT to do with infertility on both sides, female and male.So get your husband(?) tested!
Your thyroid problem is probably also being caused by low Vitamin D.
Fertility treatments do not decrease Vitamin D, it is just because you stopped taking any. (That was the doctor’s fault for not prescribing a maintenance dosage.)
Here is my advice. You should read http://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/vitamin-d-and-other-vitamins-and-minerals/. It is very important!
The 60,000iu a week equals about 8000iu a day. Since you did not make it to the “healthy” level last time, I would suggest the following. When you are done with the 8 weeks of 60,000 then start taking 8000iu a day for another month. After that drop down to 5000iu a day and never take less than that. Should you get pregnant, make sure you take at least 6000iu a day but some research points to taking more than that to have a healthy pregnancy and child. (Studies are showing that Autism can be caused by low Vitamin D levels in pregnancy.) If your husband tests lower than 50ng/ml, he should also take Vitamin D. Again minimum is 5000iu but he may need more. (Vitamin D will increase testosterone levels in men.)
If you both get your levels up to a healthy range, you just may be able to have a baby, the old fashion way. If not there have been numerous studies that show IVF is more successful, with higher Vitamin D levels.
Once you have a child, make sure they get enough Vitamin D so they too can be healthy.Answered by IAW on August 16, 2016 at 5:56 am

Thanks for your reply. Really i needed this advice in this right time. Yes, my husband also having Vit -D deficiency. He tested on April. After that he took( as prescribed by doctor ) D-RIse once in a week for 2 months.. and then now he is taking that sachet one month once. Sure once i completed this 8 weeks course, i will continue the Vit D intake. Really thank you for you.Answered by anu_bala200338314000 on August 24, 2016 at 2:03 am
