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?
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.
