Get your hormones levels checked before pregnancy including blood sugar. If they are in normal range there should not be a problem in pregnancy related to the hormones. Also your pelvis needs to get evaluated if it is normal or contracted as low growth hormone levels can be associated with a contracted pelvis. Have a safe pregnancy. GOOD LUCK !!!!

My daughter (now age 30) was on GH from 5-16. She has 2 healthy kids and everyone is doing well. She did have to go back on GH at the age of 28 because her body just could not keep up...she probably should never have stopped, but they are learning about the "kids" who are now adults. Good luck! I am sure everything will be great!
