Have you only been trying to get pregnant for a month? If so I wouldn't worry about lack of getting pregnant, all of my aunts have hypothyroidism and got pregnant just fine. What you need to worry about is verifying with your doctor that your thyroid levels are well controlled before you get pregnant. There are a lot of bad things that can happen to the developing fetus if you have uncontrolled hypothyroid symptoms, just type it into google and you will find a bunch of resources. You only said you were hypo for 5 1/2 years, not whether it was controlled or not.
If you are really worried about it have your doctor check your female hormone levels to see if you are ovulating, although most doctors don't check for infertility issues until it has been at least a year that you have been trying to conceive.
You might want to consider researching pregnancy as well, just because you copulated two days in a row doesn't mean you did it at the right time. If you are ovulating the window is not open for very long. You could try charting your BBT (basal body temp) for the next month while TTC and see when your temperature shifts indicating whether or not you are ovulating.
-- infertility is listed as a symptom of hypothyroidism, but my original point still remains that it is the stability of your levels that you need to concern yourself with more instead of getting pregnant. If your levels are not stable than you can in fact have infertility as symptom. If your levels are stable and you do not have hypo symptoms right now, then read more about how to conceive. Some people just have to try harder than others, but the best way is to know when you are ovulating and then copulate during that window.
