Thanks for your query.

Yes, the above mentioned both the problems could be due to thyroid hormone imbalance.

Thyroid hormone has a vital role in pregnancy and growth of the foetus.

I suggest you to get your Thyroid hormone levels checked and consult a Endocrinologist who can formulate dose and duration of the treatment.

I would recommend you to do it as early as possible , if you are planning for pregnancy in next year.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
