    hypothyroidism and pregnancy

    I've recently discovered that I am suffering hypothyroidism.
    How can this affect the possibility of getting pregnant?

    Dear eresc,

    I'm sorry to hear this. Hypothydroism (i.e. an underactive thyroid) can affect the way you ovulate and so cause fertility problems. In this case your doctor may prescribe medication which replaces the thyroxine hormone that you are lacking. It's also important to have your thyroid levels managed and monitored by your doctor when you do become pregnant.

    Have you told your doctor that you want to get pregnant?

    You may find this resource on Pregnancy and Thyroid Disease helpful.

    Actually my doctor knows that I want to get pregnant, and I am starting to take Eutirox pills. What I think is important is to find the proper dose, even to get pregnant.Thank you very much for your reply.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Yes that's right it is important for it to be managed properly on medication whether you are trying to get pregnant or already pregnant.
