Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Continue to monitor your thyroid hormone levels periodically to have dose readjustments done for proper control. Sometimes you need 3-5 cycles of Clomid (sometimes even along with use of HCG injections or progesterone supplements) to help you get pregnant. If the Clomid cycles fail, you can also consider going ahead with options of IUI, IVF, ICSI etc. You can also consider getting repeat complete infertility work-up done for you and your partner to look for any other underlying abnormality. Treatment as appropriate would be started (based on examination and investigation results) to help you get pregnant.
Take care.
