Elevated TSH: this is indicative of low thyroid or hypothyroidism. This can easily be treated with typhoid replacement hormone. This is a little pill you take everyday. As you thyroid normalizes it should not affect your fertility.

Treatment actually should improve your fertility but will need to be closely during pregnancy
