I wanted some advice about the best approach.
I am 27 and was diagnosed hypothyroid in September. Current tsh is 1 and t4 is 21 and I am feeling better then previous.
I have always suffered from bad pms . But over the past 3 months it has become more and more severe. My periods are now irregular. Bleeding is becoming heavier so I am now taking iron tablets as my ferritin is 26 ug/l. I suspect alot of this is down to the thyroid although doing some research I may have had oestrogen dominance before becoming hypo.
Due to all this my doctor wants to put me on the combined oral pill. I wanted to find out from some of you if you have had similar experiences.
Will it help balancing things out more? As I am aware the thyroid and oestrogen have an effect on each other.
I am weary of it making things worse as I seem to be heading in a better direction regarding other hypo symptoms, really do not want to go backwards!
