On the role of your thyroid in preconception and fertility: All females wanting to get pregnant should absolutely have a full thyroid panel down, plus your iodine levels checked as well. The reason this is, is because pregnancy has essentially been touted as the ultimate stress test for the thyroid... which sounds a bit scary if you ask me, so I'm not a huge fan of continuing to perpetuate that message. But sometimes I feel it's necessary to use in order to get you understanding just how important it is. And the reason is, even small elevations in TSH and/or thyroid antibodies can quite significantly increase your risk of miscarriage. And because during pregnancy you need adequate amounts of thyroid hormones and also the resources to create those thyroid hormones, like iodine, zinc, selenium, iron, etc, for not just you, but for your baby as well.
