We have produced some guidance to help patients understand more about their thyroid disorder and how it may affect, or be affected by, pregnancy. In addition we have resources for medical professionals which are designed to help clinicians improve their management and monitoring of women with hypothyroidism who are pregnant or trying to conceive. 

 An undiagnosed or uncontrolled thyroid disorder can make it harder to conceive and can cause problems during pregnancy. The BTF Thyroid Disorders and Pregnancy guidance will help patients understand more about their thyroid disorder and how it may affect, or be affected by, pregnancy.

In addition medical professionals can use the thyroid disorders and pregnancy resources, consisting of two protocols, a template and a leaflet (information prescription) which have now been adopted by EMIS Health.
