Welcome to HealthcareMagic Public Forum

Hypothyroidism can lead to excessive perceived stress or anxiety and difficulty in pregnancy. Thyroid Hormone preparations are safe and can be taken under physician supervision. They do not have side effects if taken in optimum doses.

If stress problem is prolonged or severe (even after correction of thyroid imbalance) and leading to frequent interpersonal problems, then for assessment and treatment, you can visit specialist like psychiatrist or psychologist.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Wish you Good Health.
