Pregnancy has an important impact on the thyroid gland and its function. Thyroid activity changes as a consequence of the novel physiological state of pregnancy and requires a complex hormonal and metabolic adaptation, which is possible only in the presence of a perfectly functioning thyroid gland. In fact, thyroid function is crucial for the success of the implantation and the progression of pregnancy. Abnormal thyroid function is very common among childbearing age women, explaining the high incidence of thyroid diseases that occur during pregnancy. Aim of this work is to analyze the adaptive events that characterize the thyroid function during pregnancy, exploring their hormonal, metabolic and molecular mechanisms. Moreover, the interpretation of the laboratory data necessary to monitor the thyroid functioning during normal pregnancy or in the presence of thyroid abnormalities will be discussed.
