Dear Ms Deepti

Good Morning. TSH goal for pregnancy is around 2.5. TSH of 5.1 is higher if you are planing pregnancy. Yes Thyronorm is safe during pregnancy. Please recheck your TSH in 4-6 weeks after starting Thyronorm to monitor TSH level. Did they do your antibodies ( anti TPO antibody?)

As far as PCOS, weight loss is very very important. 5% weight loss can help in fertility. This is very important in the management of PCOS. As far as metformin it is safe to use the medication and in recent years it is often used by infertility specialist along with ovulation induction. So it is safe to take metformin and often it is continued after you conceive during your pregnancy.

Thanks a lot for your question and good luck
