Question: Hlo i am 7 week pregnet in my tests report thyroid was come tsh 14 doctor ask me to take electroxin 100 is this medicine effect my baby or not pls help me
Answer: Hello dear. The medicine is required to keep the thyroid levels in control as it is important for the growth and devlopment of the baby. Women with established hypothyroidism should have a TSH test once pregnancy is confirmed, as thyroid hormone requirements increase during pregnancy, often leading to the need to increase the levothyroxine dose. If the TSH is normal, no further monitoring is typically required.
Untreated severe hypothyroidism in the mother can lead to impaired brain development.
If hypothyroidism is managed and treated properly, then both mother and baby are likely to be well. The extra medical care that you receive will help you to have a healthy and successful pregnancy.
Whether or not your baby will be born with hypothyroidism mainly depends on the cause for hypothyroidism in you. Hope it helps.

Answer: Hi dear,
Some ladies have thyroid during only pregnancy called gestational thyroid.
Some ladies will continue also. Its according to their health conditions.
So Consult your gynecologist and take medicine.
After delivery doctor ask you to check thyroid again. If it came to normal she advice you to stop medicine.
Because thyroid hormones play an important role in the brain development of baby during pregnancy.
In first trimester, baby will grow with mother's thyroid hormones only.
So you must consult your gynecologist dear.
Hope this will help you.
