Dear XXXXXX,
Thanks for writing in. You should check your thyroid function ASAP. You can certainly plan pregnancy even at this age provided thyroid function test is in normal range as recommended specifically for pregnancy. Thyroid problem wont interfere adversely in any way in conception. Your age can still support pregnancy provided ovarian function is normal. However advanced age increases the chances of few complications and malformations. So its wise not to wait longer. There are many endocrinologists in Bangalore. You can consult me if its conbinient. Many women have delivered babies at this age. So dont worry.
Hope for the best.

Get thyroid profile. For other tests see an endocrinologist and a gynaecologost in person. Tests may vary depending on the assessment.
