Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I want to get pregnant, but I have hyperthyroidism. I found out about thyroid last year. Will it hurt the baby? Can I take Geritol to increase the chance of pregnancy? Are multivitamins good for hyperthyroidism?

Thanks.

Answered by Dr. Uzma Arqam

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern.

Please describe your complete history. Hypothyroidism is more harmful than hyperthyroidism. Hypothyroidism can cause fertility problems, miscarriages, and development abnormalities in children. Hyperthyroidism should be monitored according to its symptoms, and high beta HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) in pregnancy could be aggravated. Overdosage to treat hyperthyroidism could cause similar side effects in pregnancy as hypothyroidism. So recurrent check on hyperthyroidism is necessary during pregnancy. You can have Folic acid and iron supplements.

I hope this information will help you.

Thanks.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
