Hi,thanks for query.Yes pregnancy can trigger underlying sub clinical hypothyrodism.You have to take medicine for thyriod,the drug is safe.For normal pregnancy normal functioning thyriod is must.It is very difficult to say about post pregnancy status,time will only tell.In most of the cases it stays.
wishing you good health.
