How the Thyroid can affect Pregnancy

An under active thyroid is a huge cause of difficulty in becoming pregnant. In fact it is more common than most women realise.
If you are unsure you should speak to your GP for a test. Ask for your results as sometimes the GP will say your result is ‘normal’ and actually you may find you are borderline ?

The thyroid hormones have a number of functions including :

~ Metabolism of Fats, Proteins and Carbs.
~ Impacts on other hormones in the endocrine system (growth hormones, adrenal function, hypothalamus, pituitary etc).
~ Blood pressure regulation.
~ Controlling weight gain.
~ Controlling heart rate.
~ Brain function.
~ Foetal development during pregnancy.
~ Impacts on Immunity.

Here are some signs that your Thyroid may be low :
~Depression
~Irritability
~Fatigue
~ Mind fog or memory loss
~Stubborn weight or weigh gain
~Sluggish digestion
~Dry skin or hair (or thinning hair)
~Feeling cold
~ Goiter
~Muscle cramps
