Thanks for the query.

Thyroid hormonal abnormalities can affect the menstrual cycle and also fertility.
So you have to continue the thyronorm tablets as advised by your doctor.
Once your thyroid levels comes to normal with the treatment that will help in getting pregnant and also in continuation of pregnancy.
Eat foods XXXXXXX in antioxidants including fruits, vegetables etc.
Better to avoid foods that will interfere with thyroid function like broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower etc.
Check thyroid levels at regular intervals like once in 3 months.
The need of thyroid hormones will increase once you get pregnant, so the dose may need to be increased with your doctor's advice.
