Hello and thank you for asking!
I have gone carefully through your concern.and i can understand your query.
From the recent guidelines of the american thyroid association is recommended to be treated with neomercasol until you have a positive pregnancy test, than you should switch into PTU.
Hope the information will help.
Kind regards,
Dr.Mirjeta
