It is probably more likely

It is probably more likely that you are having menstrual irregularities due to your thyroid issues. Your thyroid -whether over or underactive can affect your hormone levels and your menstrual cycle.

That doesn't mean you aren't pregnant, however. The best thing to do is to take a pregnancy test. If it's negative and you still haven't had your period and you had unprotected intercourse, then I would get a blood test to be sure.

If you are ready to have a baby, have a consultation with your health care provider about any adjustments you may need to to make in your medications and how your particular issues will affect your chance of pregnancy.

There is a book called Thyroid Hormone Breakthrough, by Mary Shomon, that has chapters on fertility and pregnancy with thyroid disease that you may find helpful.
