Not necessarily: It doesn't necessarily mean that you have a thyroid problem, but being cold is frequently a symptom of hypothyroidism during pregnancy. Estimates are that 2.5% of all women have some form of hypothyroidism. This can affect mother and baby, and is not something to be ignored or minimized. I always counsel a complete thyroid panel - with tsh, free t4, free t3 (liothyronine), (liothyronine) and rev t3 (liothyronine).

Thyroid+Infertility: First things first. Because you're taking synthroid (thyroxine), (thyroxine) make sure your TSH is normal, if not optimized. Pregnancy will affect your synthroid (thyroxine) dose so TSH needs to be repeated regularly. Next, ask family doc for preconception counseling & prenatal vitamin. Then figure out why you're amenorrheic (no periods). Need to figure out reason for no periods as that impacts ovulation & pregnancy. Good luck!
