Hi Dear,

you did not mention your age here nor you mentioned since how many months/ years you are trying for pregnancy. If you have started just recently, please do not label yourself as a case of 'infertility'. In case the try is since more than a few months, still you cannot be labelled as a case of infertility. The reason being your hypothyroidism. With that your TSH goes high and so does your prolactin level. That makes conception difficult. It is very common and hence when you treat your hypothyroidism, automatically your prolactin falls down increasing your chances of conception.
Now your TSH and prolactin levels are just fine for you to conceive normally and do not reduce the dose of thyroid tablet eventhough the reading of TSH is less than 0.3. You need to keep TSH before and after conception below 2.5. You also do not need any injections for ovulation. Keep a very normal routine for another 3 months and do not monitor yourself for the ovulation. With healthy diet, weight, exercise and continuation of thyroid replacement medication, you will continue getting normal cycles and hence normal ovulation during these months and there is very high chance of you coneiving on youself without the aid of injections for ovulations.
In case you are overweight and in spite of normal TSH you have irregular menstruation then you will need assistance from infertility specialist for induction of ovulation and further management after these three months.
I hope this helps you. For any further query get back to me.
