Brief Answer:
depends upon the type of thyroid condition

Detailed Answer:
It really depends upon the type of thyroid condition that you have. If you have low thyroid then replacement is easy and can be evaluated with blood tests to make sure you stay in normal range.
If you have hyperthyroidism then that may end up causing some problems due to fast heart rate. The medications for this are not safe in pregnancy.
Tell me what sort of thyroid condition you are talking about specifically and I can give you more information.

Brief Answer:
should cause no problem

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the follow up. Hypothyroidism should not cause a problem with pregnancy or getting pregnant. Your obstetrician or regular doctor can make sure the dose of thyroid hormone is appropriate to keep you in the normal range. As long as your thyroid hormone remains in normal range there should be no problem with pregnancy.
