Thyronorm (L-thyroxin) is hormone replacement therapy and is used for treating hypothyroidism not hyperthyroidism.

You might consider counsalting your doctor about taking Thyronorm during pregnancy to provide normal development of the fetus. Usually there is no risk for developing cancer while taking hormone replacement therapy.

Women that have PCOS have less chances to conceive and a higher risk to miscarry.
