I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's and mild Hypothyroidism, started on 25mcg and now on 75mcg Levothyroxine, at the same time a gynaecologist discovered I had a fairly big fibroid and my iron level was low. I had a partial hysterectomy (uterus only taken out) 5 years ago. Had no HRT at that time because they thought I did't need it. I now think that the two things together exacerbated the two different conditions. I recently said to the doctor that I: can't speak properly; having a difficult time word finding and remembering instructions; dry, thin skin; dry eyes; dry and atrophied vulva; hair breaks easily, getting weaker. (I'm 51 years old so unlikely to be the same as I was 20 year ago). These symptoms could be on the list for Hashimoto's Hypothyroidism AND the menopause. The doctor has prescribed Oestrogel Pump-Pack 0.06% gel (Besins Healthcare). The gel seems to have some ingredients that aren't good and may cause side effects. So did some searching with Dr Google, recommends bio-identical progesterone to balance the oestrogen. Not sure how I can get that but also found DHEA can help with balancing thyroid hormones and the sex hormones and more.
Thanks and best wishes
