Hi Rupali,
Hypothyroidism can affect pregnancy in several ways:
It can cause infertility in women because it can prevent the production of eggs.
A pregnant woman with hypothyroidism is at higher risk for miscarriage.
Women with untreated hypothyroidism near the time of delivery are in danger of developing high blood pressure and premature delivery.
Babies born to women with untreated hypothyroidism may not achieve their full intellectual potentia.You will require more attention and proper care in case you want to conceive so better consult your doctor for further management.
Take care.
