Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
If you have been taking Eltroxin regularly as directed by your Doctor, If your recent TSH report is normal and If your Periods are regular, you will have chances of conceiving. But any pregnancy after 35 is always risky as the quality of your Egg reduces and also the frequency of ovulation. There will be also a Increased risk of Congenital Anomalies in the baby. If your Partner and you are ready, you need to speak to your Doctor. Once you conceive, your Doctor will treat it as a High risk Pregnancy as careful monitoring of you and your Baby is required until the delivery.

Your treating Doctor will know better.

Eat Healthy Nutritious balanced diet which should include fresh fruits and Green leafy vegetables. Avoid stress, if your Husband smokes, ask him to quit.

All the Best.

Take Care.
