i and my husband visited a gynecologist two months ago. My husbands sperm count is normal and my blood test showed my TSH level 8.4 so i was asked to take thyronorm tablet (one per day) and after follicular study docotr prescribed duphahston progesterone tablets (i used these tablets for a month) but i did not conceive.

Hi, ovacare tablets and folic acid are given as the ovacare tablets has many vitamins which is known to increase fertility and folic acid is given to prevent birth defects. So, these alone will not increase chances of your pregnancy. You need some medicines for growth of your follicles and track your follicles growth by repeated ultrasound and when your follicles is more than 17 to 18 mm, take injection for rupturing the follicles. Be in contact with your husband for 2 to 3 days after injection. Take progesterone for next 2 weeks. Do a urine pregnancy test at home after that. You can try like that for 3 to 6 months. Hope I have answered your question.
