Thanks for the query
TSH of 5.9 is called sub clinical hypothyroidism which doesnt actually require treatment unless you have symptoms of hypothyroidism in which case treatment is valid.
Folic acid is taken to prevent neural tube defects and it has nothing to do with hypothyroidism

Hi Gunjan
Welcome to Healthcaremagic
I guess you are talking about TSH 5.9. Yes its high (subclinical hypothyroidism) and need treatment cause you are trying to conceive( ideal level should be less than 3). Thyroid problem can be brought under control by frequently doing thyroid profile and taking thyroxine according to the requirement. 25 micro gm is starting dose and it can be adjusted according to your requirement. As you have taken Diane 35 so i suspect you have poly cystic ovaries with increased testosterone levels ???? And you are in stress which itself is contributing factor in infertility. This is the time to be positive and go ahead with the treatment. Dont get tensed , all problems can be treated. you ll conceive soon. Reduce weight. Folic acid will be definitely helpful before conception. Take care.
