I suggest you wait for another 3 months. Repeat tsh. If its still high, you can increase the dose. However, you need to increase the dose if you are planning pregnancy. Meanwhile , make sure you aren't skipping any doses and ensure that you are taking the medicine early morning with a gap of atleast 45 minutes between intake of medicines and breakfast.
