How long I need to continue my thyroid medicine and what effect will it have on my unborn baby ?

hello doctor .. I am 28 yrs old & pregnant by 5 months. Before pregnency, my thyroid was detected & it came in my pregnency report as well. Currently my Gyani has given me a thyroid medicine.. Thyronorm 25mg. I have been told to continue this medicine even after delivery. I wanted to know, for how long I need to continue my thyroid medication & is their any need for some tests or something after delivery. Will it affect my un-born baby in any case?

Thanks for your query.     
continue thyronorm as long as your post delivery thyroid profile comes to normal.Deficiency of thyroid hormones is more harmful ,So don`t stop till delivery under any condition .It is also good for your baby.Repeat thyroid test at regular interval.
