Infertility is defined as an inability to conceive after at least one year of unprotected coitus. Hormonal

disorders of female reproductive system are comprised of a number of problems resulting from dysfunction

of hypo-thalamic-pituitary ovarian axis. These relatively common disorders often lead to infertility. An

observational, cross-sectional study was conducted which consisted of 60 infertile females of age group

20-40 years.TSH T3 and T4 were estimated. In both primary and secondary infertility groups TSH was

significantly raised(p value < 0.01). Subclinical hypothyroidism is more prevalent than overt hypothyroidism

in infertility.
