Dear Miss Singh
Most patients with an under active thyroid gland will respond very effectively to just Altroxin alone. As you have only just started it you will need to monitor your thyroid function test. If after two or three months on Altroxin your levels of your thyroid function does not return to normal then you will have to increase your dose of the Altroxin. If despite this you still do not have an adequate thyroid function test then the Digoxin. If your thyroid function tests have returned to normal with the supplementation of Altroxin and in addition if you are ovulating despite having PCOS then you may not require any method or medication to fall pregnant. You should just ensure that ovulation is taking place by doing some tests that your gynaecologist will help you with and try for atleast a year to conceive. If after a year of trying you still have difficulty then it would be advisable to seek fertility help.
