female with Fatigue, dizziness, excess hair, miscarriage
I am a 23 year old female that started on oral contraceptives in 2007. I began to feel extreme fatigue and d/c'd the birth control pills. I have struggled to feel well again since that time. I have excess weight and facial hair, as well as on my belly. I have gluten intolerance and have followed the anit-candida diet religiously to see if that would help. I have also completed the allergy-testing diet as prescribed to see if that was in issue. Both of these provided temporary relief but have not solved the issue. I have seen a DO, numerous physicians, and a homeopathic educator. I have shown low testosterone, normal thyroid, normal glucose levels (so no PCOS).
I recently had an interesting turn of events. I became pregnant and the fatigue (which is my main problem) significantly DECREASED. Unfortunately, I miscarried at 8 weeks and my fatigue and other complaints have returned in full force. I am wondering if this is showing some type of hormone imbalance??
I have regular periods, painful cramps, heavy flow, and a lot of clotting.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
