Pre-conception counseling (PCC), an integral part of obstetric care, is essential for appropriate diagnosis and management of various endocrine and non-endocrine diseases. The concept of PCC has not been adequately highlighted in thyroidology so far. This is surprising, as thyroid disorders are a common medical comorbidity in pregnancy and can potentially harm both maternal and fetal health. This article lays down a framework which can be followed by both obstetricians and endocrinologists while counseling patients planning pregnancy.
