Just wondering. . .I've been on HRT (bioidentical hormones) for 23 years. I went through early menopause at 45 years of age. Recently it occurred to me that is around the same time it was discovered I was hypothyroid. Does the emergence of Hashimoto's frequently coincide with menopause? Also, about 3 years ago I went off of the HRT for a year. The docs are always trying to get me off of them. I went back on them after a year because in one year, I aged about 10. And in addition, my thyroid disease went crazy with my TSH rising to above 14. Do you think going off the HRT contributed to the increased thyroiditis?
