I just stopped my birth control recently and almost immediately I started feeling intense fatigue and depression. I'm on thyroid meds, but I was under the impression that HBC dampened the effects of levothyroxine? If anything I should be balancing out more/feeling more anxious or agitated, right? Has anyone else experienced this? I'm also not having periods. ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ™ƒ

    I'm willing to bet you have PCOS. I was diagnosed with PCOS first, then thyroiditis, but my doctors tell me it must have been the thyroiditis that caused the PCOS. I haven't had a period in years. My obgyn was able to diagnose it with an ultrasound.

      That's what I thought, too, but all my ultrasounds came back normal. My mom thought it might be PCOS, too

      T3 is prob what you need or add in some Armour thyroid to the Levothyroxine. I only started periods after adding T3. Lookup "T4 to T3 conversion"

    As I wrote above try to get on some Cytomel, it comes in generic too or add in some natural dessicated thryroid like Armour. I never had regular periods on Levothyroxine alone. I switched to Armour and became regular. Armour has microcrystalline cellulose in it now though and T3 may work better cause the microcrystalline cellulose reduces absorption

      That's so strange! I'll have to look these up, and suggest them to my mom, too. She has Hashimoto's as well, but she has the opposite problem I do: long, heavy, painful periods ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ™ƒ

        I hope you do check out the T3 or the natural thyroid is an option. I felt so much better after I gradually switched from the Levothyroxine.
