I had a total thyroidectomy in 2009 due to cancer. I have been trying to get pregnant but unsuccessful. Is it possible I don't ovulate due to that?
I had a total thyroidectomy in january. Recently my pap test came back with agus cells, so i had a colposcopy & biopsy. Is pregnancy still possible?
Yes indeed: Congratulations on your focus both on getting good health care and your desire to become a mother. The biopsy results will determine whether there's anything in the endocervix that needs to be treated -- chances of a lesion requiring hysterectomy producing only "agus" are low. Be sure to maintain your thyroid medication through your pregnancy. ...Read more

You will still need to be on replacement (synthyroid) therapy, but it will not affect your pregnancy per se. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Had thyroid cancer and thyroidectomy 12 years ago.Am pregnant w/ 2nd child, 6 mm hypoechoic heterogenous nodule found in neck area.Recurrence possibly?
Get checked by docto: Your doctor should guide you. I would advise monitoring this nodule for any further growth over 3-6 months.
