Re: Pregnancy and Hypothroidism...Is it possible??
Actually it took my pregnancy (and subsequent miscarriage) to possibly cause my hypothyroid state. My endocrinologist is not worried, and like the other poster, said now that I am being treated, it could be easier for me to get and/or stay pregnant. Byt b/c pregnancy messes with your hormones, it's probably a smart idea to get checked by your doctor now and as soon as you find that you are pregnant as doses of medication usually have to be adjusted/increased. And if your levels are off, it could have adverse affects for your unborn child. And by the way, prescription drugs to treat hypothyroidism are safe to take during pregnancy.
