Hypothyroidism is one of the commonest endocrine disorders in pregnant women. The present study indicates a prevalence of hypothyroidism in more than 10% of pregnant women. Our study endorses the need for early antenatal screening of pregnant women in first trimester itself. If hypothyroidism is diagnosed in early pregnancy and is adequately treated and monitored, good maternal and foetal outcome is expected.
