TSH takes around 6 weeks to reflect change. Repeat your TSH after 6 weeks after starting eltroxin 50mcg. Before conceiving it is advisable to attend TSH below 2.5 and it required to maintain this level throughout pregnancy. Thyroid hormones are required for brain development of child so during organogenesis I.e. first three months it is mandatory to keep THE TSH below 2.5
