Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Yes, the thyroid replacement has to be taken life long.

The dose is adjusted by TSH level.

No problem in pregnancy for you or the baby. It is a hormone normally present in the body and we are just replacing the deficiency. On the other hand, failure to take it, may affect the baby.

No need to worry at all

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
