Brief Answer: It can be if thyroid is imbalanced. Detailed Answer: Dear User, Hi! it is not clear from your query what is your recent thyroid status. As you are hypothyroid on treatment you must have a normal balance else definitely it will prevent conception. so you must achieve a normal thyroid status for pregnancy. usually now thyroid is not diet dependent once the salt had been iodinized, it is an auto immune disorder so diet modification will not help much. yes avoid being overweight , so regulate diet so as not to put on much weight. Regards!
