Has anyone else noticed a correlation between taking the contraceptive pill and their TSH levels? When I'm NOT on the pill (have tried several varieties), my TSH level is high (<0.2) and consistent with hypERthyroidism, rather than the hypOthyroidism I have been diagnosed with. As soon as I go back on the pill, my TSH level drops closer to 2.
A GP had suggested that the pill could cause hypOthyroidism, but I also have PCOS, for which the treatment is the pill - so feel a little stuck here. Wondered if anyone else had similar experience?
