Does anyone know when it is advisable to fall pregnant again when dealing with hyperthyroid or grave's disease? Is there a difference between effects of hyperthyroid and grave's disease within pregnancy?
In my experience, my thyroid issues initially started while i was pregnant, then went away, and came back post-partum. I'm still not balanced and don't know if i ever will be.
Question is - do I wait for the thyroid to balance out before becoming pregnant? Altho it could take a while to establish whether hyperthyroidism is long-term or not.
Or do I go ahead, and deal with the thyroid during pregnancy like i did the first time? (Using PTU instead of methimazole)
Can pregnancy make my current situation worse because of hormonal changes in the body in addition to current levels?
Not sure how to plan ahead...
Thanks in advance!
