Thanks for consulting at my virtual clinic. I have carefully gone through your case, and I think I have understood your concern. I will try to address your medical concerns and would suggest you the best of the available treatment options.
1] You need to correct TSH levels with proper dose of thyroid tablets. TSH should get down below 5.5. Your endocrinologist is the best doctor to handle thyroid and Hashimoto condition.
2]I will suggest you to start with low dose oral contraceptive pills - usually 21 days pills and 7 days off the pills is routine regimen, continue at least for 3 cycles.
3]Restrict junk foods, preservative added foods.
4] Avoid deep fried foods,bakery products and refined sugars. Include plenty of fruits,salads, vegetables in diet. Have regular exercise schedule.

I hope my answer helps you.
Thanks.
