Hi,thanks for query.There are normally two types of problem can occur,one you have inactive thyroid means there is deficiency of thyriod hormone in your body and another condition in which your gland is over active,producing more hormones then required.In case of doubt you can get your blood checked for this and have the clear idea.Normal thyriod function is must for pregnancy.
wishing you good health.

the most common thyroid disorder occurring around or during pregnancy is thyroid hormone deficiency, or hypothyroidism. . Hypothyroidism can cause a variety of changes in a woman's menstrual periods: irregularity, heavy periods, or loss of periods. When hypothyroidism is severe, it can reduce a woman's chances of becoming pregnant. Checking thyroid gland function with a simple blood test is an important part of evaluating a woman who has trouble becoming pregnant. If detected, an underactive thyroid gland can be easily treated with thyroid hormone replacement therapy. If thyroid blood tests are normal, however, treating an infertile woman with thyroid hormones will not help at all, and may cause other problems.
i think it is all about your query

welcome to hcm
its a endocrine disorder and can be very well controlled..sometimes it can be because of heridetery too..if your TSH is high u will have increased heart rate,anxiousness,menstrual disturbance,bowel and bladder disturbance,and tremors..low TSH levels can cause increased weight,cold intolerance,etc..once u start taking medications it can be controlled..if the gland is very much enlarged and has a cosmetic or symptomatic problem then u can get it operated..u can go ahead with your reproductive life as it can be managed wont cause u problems..take care
