Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Do you mean poisonous goiter is hyperthyroidism or excess thyroid hormone? If indeed what is meant is hyperthyroidism, then you should also explain further the cause of your hyperthyroidism, because hyperthyroidism also has a variety of reasons.
Hyperthyroidism is most often caused by Graves' disease. This disease is an autoimmune disease in which immune cells attack the body itself (in this case immune cells attach to the thyroid gland and stimulate the thyroid gland to produce excessive thyroid hormones). If what you are experiencing is Graves' disease and you only get drugs to treat your hyperthyroidism, then your normal thyroid hormone levels do not indicate that you have recovered from your illness, but rather indicate that your thyroid hormone production is controlled by medication. so that it's no longer excessive. If you stop taking the medicine, your thyroid hormone will very likely increase again.
If you want to plan a pregnancy, you should still consult with your internal medicine doctor (endocrinologist) who treats you. Your internal medicine doctor will conduct further tests to find out if your thyroid hormone production is properly controlled and whether you can plan a pregnancy. Hyperthyroidism itself can interfere with the fertility of sufferers, therefore your hyperthyroidism disease must be controlled first to increase your chance of getting pregnant. Even if later you are pregnant, you still have to do control to your internal medicine doctor to adjust the type of drug and drug dosage because pregnancy itself can change your response to the previous treatment given. Because your pregnancy will also be a risky pregnancy (because of your hyperthyroidism), you must take the pregnancy control to the obstetrician (not only to the midwife).
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
