Go to a reproductive endocrinologist.  Or at the very least see a different OB/GYN.  You should have good enough rapport with your doctor that you can ask these questions and he can either explain to you why certain things aren’t necessary or order the tests anyways to alleviate your concern.  Either way, it sounds like it’s time to change doctors.

What other test could he do for your thyroid that your insurance would cover if the levels show normal in your blood work?

For the thyroid test, are they just testing TSH or are they testing Free T4/Free T3 also?

Demand that they order a T3, T4 (if they haven’t already) and also a Thyroid Stimulating Immunoglobulin blood test.
