Does Hyperthyroidism Medication Can Cause Miscarriage?
Hello. I rarely get hyperthyroid disease, and I have been pregnant twice but always dropped off after I was 4 months old, and when I was pregnant I always took the drug that the doctor gave me “thyrozol 5mg” and the doctor said it was no problem in consumption. Is this the effect of hyperthyroidism that causes a fall? Do I have to cure my hyperthyroidism before getting pregnant again ?? Please explain. Thank you
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Hyperthyroidism is an endocrinological disease characterized by high levels of thyroid hormone in the blood. Thyroid hormone is produced by the thyroid gland in the front of the neck. This hormone functions in the body's metabolism, so people with hyperthyroidism will experience complaints caused by an increase in body metabolism, such as sweating even though they are already in the air conditioned room, weight loss and palpitations.
In pregnant women with hyperthyroidism, pregnancy is very risky, both to the fetus and the mother. In the fetus, the fetus may experience miscarriage, fetal death in the womb, stunted growth in the womb, low birth weight, thyroid disorders and premature birth. Whereas in mothers, high blood pressure can occur, preeclampsia, eclampsia, heart failure and thyroid storms.
Therefore, it is better if you undergo treatment for hyperthyroidism which is experienced at this time. Later when it has improved, you can plan your next pregnancy. In order to get better soon, take medication regularly, follow what your doctor's advice is and routine control according to what your doctor has scheduled.
If you really want a pregnancy, it's good if you consult first with an obstetrician, yes.
Thus hopefully useful.
