Hi there.

The Ebexid tablet is not for thyroid but it is a multivitamin tablet for general health. It does not contain folic acid and you need to take folic acid 5 mg per day daily as you are planning for conception. Please start it right away.
If you are trying for conception since a year without any fruit then do get your TSH, FT4, Anti-TPO, random sugar, hemoglobin, ANA tests and USG pelvis done as a first step of general evaluation of not able to conceive.
Get back with the results for further assistance.
