Before all this thyroid mess came to light, I used to have very, very heavy periods with lots of blod clots (sorry to be so graphic) and MAJOR cramps that sometimes felt like labor pains. I have had a few ovarian cysts and was automatically given a diagnosis of PCOS. More tests have been run and it has been determined that I do not have PCOS. The only time I have ever missed a period, I was pregnant (twice) or I messed up on taking my BC pills. Was given 50 mcg of levothyroxine and was not improving much. Went to another doc, just recently given 1 grain armour. I had a "normal" period in December. 3 wks later I thought I was starting my period again but wound up spotting for 5 days. 3 wks after that I spotted (barely) for 3 days. I have had my tubes tied (1997) and me and hubby are having probs so I don't remember when the last time I had sex was.
I was given Zetia for my cholesterol and spironolactone because I do have some hirsutism (sp?). Started taking all that in December. So, is this problem related to the thyroid or the other meds?
I am really getting concerned because I do have a history of endometrial hyperplasia and am at higher risk of endometrial cancer. Why can't I be normal again?
My last blood tests came back looking pretty good. I don't have them here at home so can't post them at present. Any one have any idea or have been through this themselves?
