Nina, althought your TSH levels might have come back normal, the fact that you have those anti-thyroid antibodies shows that your body is attacking your thyroid and this could be affecting your fertility. Also, don't like being the bearer of bad news but even things are OK with your thyroid as of now, the fact that your body is attacking your thyroid means it won't necessarily stay that way.
The synthroid (different name for the medication you mentioned) won't treat the underlying auto-immune issue, but it will provide support for your thyroid gland, which is a good thing, since it's under attack.
Do you by any chance have any gluten intolerance issues? Do you have any skin issues like psoriasis/eczema? Just asking because I've been doing a lot of research and there is some connection between all of these.
