Getting pregnant with thyroid is quite a task. It affects periods, ovulation and weight too. For women wondering how to get pregnant with thyroid, here is how.

Though we don't talk about thyroid much during pregnancy, but the functioning of this gland can affect pregnancy in a big way.

A malfunctioning thyroid can affect not only the hormone production related to the thyroid gland but also the production of other hormones. This hormonal imbalance in the body can lead to various other health crisis and affect pregnancy too. Since the thyroid hormone regulates cellular function; abnormal thyroid function can affect your fertility.

Undiagnosed and untreated thyroid disease can be a cause for infertility or frequent miscarriages. Often an underlying thyroid condition goes untreated in many women as standard blood tests in around 80 percent of cases misses to record low tissue thyroid levels that are causing or contributing to infertility.

Low levels of thyroid hormone can interfere with ovulation, which impairs fertility. In some cases even though the symptoms may subside, the malfunctioning gland could have already interfered with the ovaries and other cellular function to a great extent, which may come in the way of your pregnancy. It is wise that one get a consultation done with your reproductive specialist / gynecologist to evaluate your health status and get a through check up done before planning your pregnancy and the medical attention needed for the same.
