No. : Hi. No, treated hypothyroidism does not put you into high risk pregnancy status. Usually your stable pre-preganancy thyroid hormone dose will need to be raised early in pregnancy. Either your OB will do that, or send you to an endocrinologist. To a healthy pregnancy!

No: if it is controlled during the pregnancy. It will be checked several times during your pregnancy.
