thank you.though your menstrual period is regular but hypothyroidism itself may cause infertility. thyronorm will not alter your menstrual period. it is not possible to ensure that you will conceive after 3 months of therapy but the possibility will be increasing. you are prescribed for 3 months because thyroid function is to be rechecked after that period & dose may be modified. thyroxine replacement therapy is sometimes needed for lifelong.
