I'm pregnant and have hypopituitarism if I stop taking my birth control will I have a miscarriage?
Miscarriage: You won't be as well as you should until you have your doctor help you control the hypothyroidism.

Growth hormone, lh/fsh, tsh, acth, adh, (vasopressin) etc. Hypopit patients often are hypothyroid because they can't make the thyroid stim hormone (tsh). People who are just hypothyroid can't make thyroid hormone because of thyroid damage. Tsh is high in such patients.See 1 more doctor answer
