I had a question or two about HypER-thyroid.
First, I wanted to know that if a woman has a hyper-thyroid condition or Grave's Disease, can it readily affect her ability to conceive a child and if she does conceive does it put her in a high risk category?
Also, are there any other physical or psychological problems that hyper-thyroid disease may be a pre-cursor for such as high blood pressure, depression, etc. I once heard that endometriosis and thyroid disorders often go hand-in-hand.
I'm sure that each individual case is different but I was just wondering about generalities.
Thanks for you insight and experience.

That's interesting you bring that up... I just read an article on webmd.com that talked about how hyperthyroidism can worsen during pregnancy and how thyroid disorders can affect fertility. I can't remember the details, but try webmd.com. The article was very informative.
