Vivienneferreira,

Oral HRT can affect absorption of Levothyroxine but I really don't know whether the same is true of pessaries. Try to leave 4 hours between taking Levothyroxine and using the pessary just in case.

It may be that TSH has risen because thyroid function is decreasing and you need a Levothyroxine dose increase.

Vivienneferreira,

Not necessarily. There may be changes in how you absorb and metabolise replacement. For some strange reason my FT3 rose high in range after being on a dose for a year so I've reduced dose slightly.
