Can you get pregnant after thyroidectomy?

Can you get pregnant after thyroidectomy?

Yes, it is definetly possible to get pregnant after thyroidectomy but you may face some challenges due to secondary hypothyroidism post surgery. A study published in August 2015 in the "Journal of Pregnancy" found that women with hypothyroidism were less likely to become pregnant and more likely to take longer to become pregnant than women without the condition. You need to consult a doctor and take treatment accordingly.
