Hi doctor,

I am a 21 year old female. I am having hypothyroidism. Will hypothyroidism affect my ability to get pregnant?



Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • There are around 70% of the Asian population suffering from hypothyroidism.
  • You have all the chances of pregnancy. I have seen number of patients with hypothyroidism to have a healthy pregnancy and delivered a healthy baby.
  • Please take your medications properly and have a regular check on the hormonal values.
  • So, relax and do not worry. However, if you have a doubt, then get back to me with reports so that I can guide you further.
