Congratulations on you pregnancy!

Thyroxine is known to be safe during pregnancy; it is actually untreated thyroid conditions that are potentially harmful during pregnancy.

We have had some previous discussions on this topic, and you can read about them at: EmpowerHER: thyroid condition during pregnancy.

Does this help?
