no menses, pelvic scanning:enometrial thickness:6mm. , TSH:5.90, PRL:16.70, progynova , modus, thyronorm

Good afternoon doctor, I am neethu age 22years from india, from the past 3months i was not getting my menstrual cycle so i went to the doctor she took 2 blood tests ( TSH ,PRL) and 1 Pelvis scanning, the results came as TSH:5.90,PRL:16.70,scanning:enometrial thickness:6mm. So after seeing the reports she suggested me some tablets to get periods (progynova 2mg,modus-10)within 20days. After seeing the TSH she suggested Thyronorm 25mcg to take for 2 months and then she said to take the same blood tests again. My doubt is that the tablets which the doctor suggested are good and correct for my problem?? as i am taking both tablets for periods and for thyroid does it has any harmfull effect?? the health problem which i am facing now is it dangerous?? does it has any affects on pregnancy issues in future?? i hope to get a reply from you as soon as possible. Thank you.

Hi Neethu,
Your TSH levels are slightly high. suggesting there is less thyroid hormone in your body that is why the doctor has asked you to take the thyronorm. Your doctor is right in asking you to repeat the tests.
However havent you done the LH/FSH test in your blood? You should get that done too next time.
The tablets that you have been prescribed for your periods is correct though even if you just took Modus for 7 days you will get your period after stopping the pill.
If your problem in menstrual cycle is because of thyroid issues then it will be regularised by taking thyroid treatment itself.
With the LH/FSH test we can find out if there is any other problem in your menstrual cycle. If LH/FSH test is abnormal then you may have to take the pills suggested by doctor to get periods regularly.
Another thing is that whenever you plan your pregnancy in future these things have to reassessed and accordingly the medicines have to be changed wherever required.
Hope this helps
Take care.

its very safe to take thyronorm. it has no sideeffects and is the most safest drug in pregnancy.
on d other hand it has got possitive efect on your fertility .also u might have to increase the dose of thyronorm as soon as u become pregnant. as less than nomal thyroid hormone may cause many side effects during pregnancy and in ur child like abortion low i.q in babies pre term delivery stillbirth etc.
