Thyroid - Can it Prevent You from Getting Pregnant?

Thyroid - Can it Prevent You from Getting Pregnant?

The human body works as directed by the various hormones released by the endocrine system. These hormones are essential for coordination of various body functions. From the height a person achieves to the metabolic reactions in the body to the reproductive cycle to the stress levels a person can handle, all are hormone controlled.

Pregnancy is another critical, complicated phase that a woman goes through. It is one of the most awaited phases in a woman’s life; however, it is not very simple either. The above-noted hormones play a major role in this pregnancy, as the baby is dependent on the mother for its initial supply of hormones until it can start producing its own hormones. If the baby does not receive the require amounts, there could be various detrimental effects during development and post birth.

Hypothyroidism or an underactive thyroid is extremely common in women and there are multiple theories about how hypothyroidism can affect a woman’s chances of getting pregnant. While the correlation between hypothyroidism and pregnancy are quite well researched, a strong connection stating hypothyroid women being not able to be pregnant is yet to be proven.

The following are some correlations between hypothyroidism and pregnancy.

Increased chance of miscarriage: Women with reduced thyroid functions have double the chances of having a miscarriage. Women suffering from thyroid are at a risk of recurrent miscarriages during the first trimester. The chances of miscarriages during the second trimester are also about 40% higher in hypothyroid women. These women are also at a risk of:

  1. Premature labour
  2. Low birth weight
  3. Increased chances of stillbirth
  4. Maternal anemia
  5. Postpartum hemorrhage
  6. Developmental defects and/or delays in the newborn
  7. Placental abruption
  8. High blood pressure

One of the reasons identified for infertility in women is hypothyroidism. This range varies from 1% to 40% and so remains to be proven still. In addition, the hypothyroid mother will have a set of symptoms to live through, which may be further complicated given the pregnancy. Thyroid replacement should be religiously done and monitored to ensure TSH levels are at the optimal required levels (2.5 to 3 mIU/L) during the entire duration of pregnancy.

If you have the following, be sure to go through a comprehensive thyroid screening before and during pregnancy.

  1. Family history of thyroid
  2. History of thyroid dysfunction or goitre or thyroid antibodies
  3. Clinical signs and symptoms suggestive of hypothyroidism
  4. History of repeated miscarriages
  5. History of head and neck radiation
  6. Family/personal history of autoimmune disorders

While it still remains to be proven that hypothyroidism per se can stop a woman from being pregnant, there are definitely effects of hypothyroidism on the developing child and the mother. A comprehensive screening and close monitoring through pregnancy are extremely essential. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Home work can be done. For any couple to get pregnancy it requires patience, as treatment after treatment can be tried and possibility of pregnancy is only on day of ovulation in cycle. Leave it to gynaecologist or infertility specialist in whom you have trust to decide what treatment when.

What is ovulation period in females? Are there ways to find out the exact ovulation day? And having sex on that day results in 100 % pregnancy? Please give me proper solution.

MBBS
General Physician, Chandigarh
You can not be 100%sure about ovulation day unless you get it checked in the ultrasound by getting follicular study done and again having sex even on the ovulation day is not 100% confirmatory to get pregnant.

U better consult with your gynecologist and get your check up done and scan to rule out the cause of lower abdominal pain. If everything is normal you can plan for a baby. Even ovulation causes pain only for a day.

Hello- You can perform sex as per your will during pregnancy. A baby isn't hurt when a pregnant woman and her partner make love. The amniotic sac and the strong muscles of the uterus protect the baby, and the thick mucus plug that seals the cervix helps guard against infection.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Women and girls who are not lactating will ooze clear liquids from their breasts if squeezed. This is common and nothing abnormal. Don't confuse yourself and Take care.

As a matter of fact it is good that you didn't conceive so fast because after one d&c you should give atleast 6 to 9 months gap to get pregnant again have patience you will conceive again try to have sexual relationship every alternate day from day 10 to 20 of your cycle considering first day of the periods as day one

Fibroids in breast is not a good sign. Every homoeopath have different approach to his patient. So cant comment on whether the medicine you r taking is ok or not. The cure depend upon your faith towards your doctor. So just have faith in your doctor nd ask him what is in your mind. He will surely answer all your queries.
