Hello,

You have normal TSH result under 25 mcg/die Levothyroxine. This means that you have the right thyroid test if you are trying to conceive.

For the PCO syndrome the Metformine and Inositol+folic acid is Ok.

I suggest only to stop taking Metformine, to be totally safe for the conception process.

My last advice is to consult physically a local ob-gyn for a pelvic ultrasound and to discuss with him about your menses, your fertile window and how to increase your chances for pregnancy.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Elona Xhardo, Endocrinologist
