High TSH, spotting. Prescribed thyronorm. Missed periods. Not pregnant. What to do?

Hi. I am 31 yrs old and have a 5 yr old son. I was planning to have my second child but found my TSH quite high ~19. There were not any apparent symptoms of hypothyroidism except for some changes in my menstrual cycle (spottinf for several days), the doc advised me 75mcg thyronorm. Now my tsh is .56 but i have missed periods for two months. I am not pregnant. What should I do?

The secretory form of thyroid is T3, which turns into the active form T4. If both are reduced there is a natural phenomenon for the body to increase the level of Thyroid stimulating Hormone.
The normal level of TSH is 0.5 to 5. Before starting the Thyroid tabs the level of T3 & T4 to be accessed. Only if it is low treatment to be started. Moreover once started it has to be taken life long. The dosage is as per dr's advice. The main Symptoms of hypothyroidism are weight gain & lethargy, Irregular scanty period. So don't lose hope. Consult your dr regarding dosage. You have to take the tab everyday preferably in empty stomach
Best wishes
