Brief Answer:
Primary hypothyroidism.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

You have primary hypothyroidism and you must start the treatment as prescribed. Thyroid imbalance does interfere with conception, so you must correct it. It will take around three months to stabilize.

Normal thyroid balance increases your chances of conception but still if you face problem after achieving normal thyroid balance, let me know. We will need some more tests in that case.

Hope this answers your query. If any further questions, will be happy to help.

Regards.
