Hello. Your present TSH levels indicate that your hypothyroidism is well controlled. Your weight is normal too 1) you can be started in myoinositol. It's a long term treatment but effective along with diet and exercise. 2) OC pills will not affect fertility. After you stop them, ovulation resumes within 2-3 months. 3) avoid all artificial sugar, packaged food, fried food. Increase water intake, fruits & vegetables. Cook food in minimum oil 4) you may go for gym, yoga, dance, aerobics, running. At least 30-45 min everyday
