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). ...Read more

I had hyperthyroid during my pregnancy. Now my baby is three months old n I still have overactive thyroid. Is it true that It will continue forever?
Possibly: It sounds like you have Graves disease that started during pregnancy. About 20-30% of patients with this will go into remission while taking antithyroid drugs. However, that means that 70-80% of patients will have recurrence of hyperthyroidism when they stop the medication. The options then are to do surgery to remove most of the thyroid, or receive radioactive iodine. ...Read more
