Thanks for query,
Your TSH is very low and so some modification in the dose is required.
Your problem is due to uncontrolled thyroid.
Consult your physician and seek his advice.
After control of thyroid your period will become normal and chaces of having pregnancy increases.
Ok and bye.

Hello.welcome.You have low TSH and this doesn't mean pregnancy.For confirmation of pregnancy you will have to go for urine test.Better consult a endocrinologist and get your thyroid functions normal.You will be able to conceive once your thyroid is normal.Good luck.

Hi Vinisha,

Thanks for posting your query.

I understand your concern.

Your TSH level is very low. TSH level does have an effect over menstruation and pregnancy. You can go in for an urine pregnancy test to confirm pregnancy. I suggest you to visit your endocrinologist to revise the dosage of your medication.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available for your follow up queries, if any.

Wishing you a good health.

Take care.

hi vinisha,
welcome to hcm

thanks for the query

you seem to be suffering from hyperthyroidism. your tsh level is low. so before you conceive you have to correct your thyroid profile.if not treated it can lead to miscarriage, maternal heart failure, preeclampsia, premature delivery, and stillbirth

since you missed your period you can go for a urine pregnancy test to confirm the pregnancy. if test comes negative then it may be due to hormonal effect

and if test is positive , then your gynecologist will carefully monitor your treatment during your pregnancy.

take care
