THanks for the query
The TSH level is in the subclinical hypothyroidism range. It need not be treated and this is not the cause for her painful periods and highly unlikely to be the cause for infertility so she can definitely get pregnant

Pediatrician Dr. S. Arun's  Response
Hi, some more information and history will be helpful. Nevertheless the TSH certainly appears elevated outside normal range. Is she seeing a doctor? If not please see a physician in the near future to assess her for hypothyroidism and for further management. The second part of the query is difficult to answer although your physician may refer your wife for a gynecologist's opinion. Good Luck. Take Care
