But with adequate control and therapy, the majority of these problems can also be cured along with the normalization of thyroid hormone levels. Keep in mind that a woman's fertility is also influenced by various factors and thyroid disorders are only one factor that can affect, several other factors:

Exposure to chemicals
Alcohol consumption
