EmpowHer Asks: Do thyroid disorders symptoms different between pregnant and nonpregnant women? Professor John Lazarus MD FRCP FACE Professor Clinical Endocrinology Not really, the problem is that the symptoms of thyroid disorders and pregnancy are very similar to the symptoms of just being pregnant. For example some women who are pregnant feel tired, they have other very none specific symptoms which you can get in thyroid disease. So it’s not enough to say that you can diagnose a thyroid disease by just examining a woman and asking her about symptoms because they could just be due to pregnancy alone.
