User :   Hi! I am 31 yrs old having one baby of 5 yrs. Now I again want to conceive. i do have slight Thyroid problem. My Tsh was between 5.6-6 but it is fully under control after taking Thyrox 50 mg tablet. Today I went to a gynae for the same information and she prescribed Norgest 5 mg tablet (contains: Norethisterone 5 mg.) but I am very confused regarding her prescription. Pls guide.
