I have been feeling unwell for over 2 years now, since having my youngest child, and today was informed that I have an under active thyroid.
My doctor didn't really say much about it, just that I need more blood tests to find out what has caused it and that it is easily fixed with medication. So I left my appointment relatively happy and relieved but since returning home I have read online that this condition requires life long daily medication and causes problems with pregnancy and child birth?! Reading this has devastated me beyond belief as I am only 25 and was hoping to have another baby in the near future.
Is this true? And is there anything else I should know about this condition? I don't know anybody else with this problem and after today have little faith in my doctor supplying me with correct info or advice. Any help to understand what affect this will have or how to cope would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance x
