Pregnancy



Does anyone know if you can still get pregnant without a thyroid?
It has been affecting my life to the point where I want it out NOW! I cough to much, if I have any type of drainage I choke, I can't sleep bc of the pressure. My throat and neck constantly hurt. My voice tires out quickly. I am sick of it. I haven't had a full nights sleep in weeks bc of the pressure and choking from it being so darn swollen.

I don't want to ruin my chances of getting pregnant, so I'll wait until we are done having kids, but I want a good night sleep and 1 day without have a coughing fit for absolutely no reason. And I'd like to quit being the gross person constanly clearing their throat....

Yes, look on my notes and add Txgurl4real. She is having her second baby. However, she went though a lot and could give you advice. Like me, it took Lovenox & Cytomel for her to have a healthy pregnancy.

Thanks Risa. I'm on levothorexine and cytomel.  I'm assuming I would continue it after removal.

Yes, you would continue for life and you would have to always take your meds.

My SIL had her thyroid removed and went on to have two children. One conceived naturally and the other via IVF. However, the IVF was due to other issues conceiving having nothing to do with her thyroid.

She does take a synthetic thyroid though and I had asked her when she was pregnant if it was an issue and she said no.

Best of luck to you. Hopefully you can have your thyroid removed and can feel better soon!
