DID YOU ASK YOUR DOC: Your doc probably means that you need to get the graves disease under control because that could lead to serious complications with you and your baby if you were to become pregnant, and if your are only 20 yrs old , you have plenty of time to get pregnant, you want to maximize your chances for a healthy pregnancy and baby ! please speak with your doc so your doc can expalin everything to you.
