Hello, Welcome to HCM I am Dr. Das.

Firstly, with a TSH level of 4.98 you do not need any medication.

Secondly, as your pregnancy test is negative, you should consult with your treating doctor for a progesterone challenge. It will induce the period force fully. After getting your period, you should be investigated for presence of any polycystic ovarian syndrome.
