OBJECTIVE Thyroid disease is the second most common endocrine condition in women of childbearing age. Thyroid hormones are involved in control of menstrual cycle and in achieving fertility affecting the actions of follicle-stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone on steroid biosynthesis by specific triiodothyronine sites on oocytes; therefore, affect all aspects of reproduction. It remains controversial if pregnant women should be screened for thyroid dysfunction. Purpose of this review was…

Thyroid Regulation and Dysfunction in the Pregnant Patient

This chapter reviews the physiology of thyroid and pregnancy focusing on iodine requirements and advances in placental function, including the role of isolated hypothyroxinemia on obstetric outcomes and neurodevelopment and the influence of thyroid autoantibodies on the same parameters.

Effect of Levothyroxine on Miscarriage Among Women With Normal Thyroid Function and Thyroid Autoimmunity Undergoing In Vitro Fertilization and Embryo Transfer: A Randomized Clinical Trial

Among women in China who had intact thyroid function and tested positive for antithyroperoxidase antibodies and were undergoing IVF-ET, treatment with levothyroxine, compared with no lev Timothyroxine treatment, did not reduce miscarriage rates or increase live-birth rates.

Thyroid Function and Autoimmunity Versus Number of Pregnancies

Because pregnancy might contribute to the development of thyroid autoimmunity, women should be monitored for development of thyrotropin long after their pregnancies, even after an uneventful first conception, pregnancy and delivery of a live infant.

Effects of thyroid diseases on pregnancy outcomes

The current study aimed to analyze the effects of thyroid diseases on pregnancy outcomes and investigate the effects of levothyroxine (L-T4) tablets in the treatment of hypothyroidism. The current

The objective of this paper is to review the research in detection and management of Graves’ disease (thyrotoxicosis) during and after pregnancy, and discuss thyroid receptor antibodies, etiology of Grave’s disease, pregnancy related complications, infants’ thy rotoxicosis management, as well as post-partum management, guidelines and counseling offered to pregnant women.

The assessment of thyroid autoantibody levels in euthyroid patients with polycystic ovary syndrome

Not only thyroid hormone levels but also thyroid autoantibody levels should be screened during the investigation of PCOS and the patients with positive results need to be followed up carefully in the long run.

Impact of subclinical hypothyroidism and thyroid autoimmunity on clinical pregnancy rate after intrauterine insemination in euthyroid women

Anti-TPO antibodies and subclinical hypothyroidism had no impact on clinical pregnancy rates in the women submitted to IUI.

An exploration on the influence of positive simple thyroid peroxidase antibody on female infertility

The results indicated that positive TPO-Ab may be associated with PCOS and EMT, though particularly withPCOS, and it is recommended that thyroid autoantibodies are detected in infertile PCOS females aged 28–35 years old, and treatment should be administered as soon thereafter.

Does subclinical hypothyroidism and/or thyroid autoimmunity influence the IVF/ICSI outcome? Review of the literature

Current guidelines on the management of women with SCH and/or thyroid autoimmunity undergoing ART cycles will be presented in this review.

Hashimoto’s thyroiditis worsens ovaries in polycystic ovary syndrome patients compared to Anti-Müllerian hormone levels

It is pointed out that the coexistence of PCOS and HT, two prevalent diseases of reproductive age, further diminished ovarian reserve and patients with PCOS + HT should be monitored more closely to determine the fertility treatment options and control premature ovarian failure (POF) table.



Thyroid disease and female reproduction

It is advisable to measure thyroid function and detect AITD in infertile women before ART, and to follow‐up these parameters after COH and during pregnancy when A ITD was initially present, as well as to treat women with thyroid dysfunction at early gestation stages with l‐thyroxine to avoid pregnancy complications.

Thyroid function and human reproductive health.

Via its interaction in several pathways, normal thyroid function is important to maintain normal reproduction. In both genders, changes in SHBG and sex steroids are a consistent feature associated

This is the first case of a woman with an unknown subclinical autoimmune hypothyroidism who developed overt and transient hypothy thyroidism as a consequence of controlled ovarian hyperstimulation for infertility.

[Frequency of subclinical thyroid problems among women during the first trimester of pregnancy].

There is a high frequency of subclinical thyroid diseases among women consulting in this prenatal care clinic, particularly among women with hypothyroidism and euthyroid women.

The association between thyroid disease and infertility indicate that TH and TSH affect the endometrium and ovary on the paracrine level.

Guidelines of the American Thyroid Association for the diagnosis and management of thyroid disease during pregnancy and postpartum.

Pregnancy is a stress test for the thyroid, resulting in hypothyroidism in women with limited thyroidal reserve or iodine deficiency, and postpartum thyroiditis inWomen with underlying Hashimoto’s disease who were euthyroid prior to conception.

The 2012 ES-G provides 52 recommendations for the care of the pregnant woman with thyroid disorders, with two noteworthy modifications in the hypothyroid section, and the conundrum related to the fact that neither The Endocrine Society nor the American Thyroid Association represents the organization.

The aim of this review is to elaborate the adverse role of hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism in female reproduction physiology.

Gestational thyroid function abnormalities in conditions of mild iodine deficiency: early screening versus continuous monitoring of maternal thyroid status.

In mildly ID areas thyroid function testing early in gestation seems to be only partly effective in identifying thyroid underfunction in pregnant women, and adequate iodine supplementation should be strongly recommended to meet the increased hormone demand over gestation.
