Thanks for your question.
The need for thyroid hormone increases.
hence armour thyroid was appropriate during pregnancy for fetal development.
You do not need armour thyroid after delivery.
Your TSH level should be checked after 3 months of discontinuing armour thyroid.
Thanks.. I was actually taking it prior to pregnancy and then during of course. I did go after birth and had stopped taking it on my own and was told it was again boderline and that is when my RE said I should just continue and follow up with a endocrinologist. I just wasn't convinced it was necessary but don't want to do something that would be harmful to myself.
as long as your TSH is around 2.5, you should be fine.
This will not be harmfu.
But your TSH level should be checked within 3 months.
