: Hi! My question is do any of you know if it is possible to have hypo/hyperthyroid symptoms after having a baby if you are on Synthroid? I had 85% of my thyroid gland removed 1 1/2 years ago and am currently on Synthroid. Now 5 weeks after my baby was born, I am having constant headaches, weight gain, dizzy spells, fatigue and constipation. Does it sound like symptoms of recurring thyroid problems and is it possible since I only have 15% of my thyroid gland and Synthroid? Any help at all would be appreciated! Thank you! Kim

Kim- Yes,Yes,Yes... During both pregnancies I had to change my dose 3 or 4 time. And post pregnancy with the 1st another 3 times to stablize it took about a year and a half. With my second I am still tring to get it right only 14 mo and we have switched it twice. Your hormones effect everything along with the prenatles. My Dr told me it took about a year to have you hormones back to "normal" after your child was born. Get a blood test if you havent had one in the last 7 weeks. Congradulations.

Susan
