I'm Hypothyroid and after finding out that HRT can interfere with my Levothyroxine uptake I am doing an experiment on myself to see if leaving off HRT will make any difference to my health or make my health worse. I was on HRT just before finding out I had Hypothyroidism, several years ago.
What I am reading and being told is all 'swings and roundabouts.'
I was clinging onto my prescribed HRT as many women say the estrogen gives them an energy boost among other pluses, after the menopause.
I do try to 'listen' to what my body is telling me to help make medical decisions, but I have no idea what to expect when leaving off the HRT.
My Doctor is trying to get me to take a 'new,' but lower dose HRT, so thought I would experiment before my present HRT is taken away altogether. Once Doctor puts me down to the 'new' lower dose HRT there might not be a chance to go back on it.
So has anyone had experiences regarding both Levothyroxine and HRT and when leaving the HRT off please ?
