Not sure what: prosturm is, but if your thyroid level is high it needs to be treated either with radioactive iodine or anti-thyroid drugs until the levels are normalized. It is much more difficult to become pregnant when your thyroid is overactive, and the incidence of miscarriage and other problems increases, so wait until it's normalized for safety. ...Read more
