  • After pregnancy it is not unusual to have changes in thyroid function, but if it stays elevated you will need to do something about it. If you have recently been pregnant and recently had an abnormal thyroid test I'm sure your doctor will want to check it again to see if it has gone back to normal. If your thyroid is extremely overactive it can be pretty dangerous, so make sure you check back in with your doctor when you are supposed to.
