INFORMATION FOR WOMEN WHO HAVE HYPERTHYROIDISM DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING

                                                                                                                                                

What is hyperthyroidism during pregnancy?

Changes in thyroid function are related to pregnancy in multiple ways. While thyroid abnormalities can affect pregnant women, pregnancy itself can trigger changes in thyroid function, and problems with thyroid hormones can reduce your fertility, making it hard to get pregnant in the first place. Hyperthyroidism is the state in which your thyroid is overactive, meaning that it is making and releasing too much of the thyroid hormones, triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4), thus, accelerating your metabolism and producing a range of symptoms and other effects throughout your body, including fertility difficulties. Once you are pregnant, you can become hyperthyroid, as well.
