Thank you for your query.
Firstly, if you are anxious for conceiving, I fail to understand why you terminated your pregnancy.
Kindly provide the details for me to understand better.
THyroxine is given to patients with hypothyroidism, if your TSH is elevated, in order to normalize thyroid function, as hypothyroidism can lead to infertility and abortions.
Nitrofurantoin is an antibiotic given for urinary tract infections.
Clomid is clomiphene which is given to induce ovulation in case you have difficulty in ovulating.
However, it cannot be started immediately, as you mention that you terminated a pregnancy yesterday.
Please provide complete and detailed history.
Take care

Hi arti,
Thanks for posting a query.

Thyroxin is given in Hypothyroidism.
It corrects the hormonal imbalance in the body.
Menstrual cycles are regulated and thus increases your chances of conception.
Euthyroid state is maintained by appropriate dose of thyroxin and thus fertility is restored.
Hope this helps.
