Can i get pregnant while taking eltroxin for underactive thyroid?

Good Day

I'm 30 years old, just found out i have an underactive thyroid, and is using eltroxin for 2 weeks now.

I want to get pregnant and underwent a laporoscopy to check if everything is still in good order.

For how long do i have to use the eltroxin and while on this medication can i fall pregnant.

Hi, once you have normal thyroid profile, you can conceive. There is no problem in conceiving while taking eltroxin. The dose needs to be adjusted according to the value of TSH in pregnancy. Hope I have answered your question.
