to my knowledge pcos does not cause hashis..Hashis is an autoimmune disorder.. our immune systems sees they thyroid as a foreign object and kills it off..Now if the thyroid is off it can cause symptoms of pcos..If im not mistaken there is a blood test to determine if you have it or not meaning the pcos
Also from what I have learned its not uncommon for women with thyroid disorders to have an estrogen and progesterone imbalance.. Estrogen dominance cant be treated very easily with natural progesterone or if one prefers synthetic..
On the flip side if one is w/o nodules, present antibodies, and has a clear bill of no pituitary tumors.. High amounts of estrogen will interact with the thyroid..Causing sub clinical hypothyroidism..
The whole hormnal system is awfully hard to learn and bloody confusing
..lol im trying my best to study up on what I can...I myself am suffering with estrogen domince and whacked up periods.."knock on wood that seems to be trying to stablize "
Hope all gets to feeling better ; )..Everyone take care
Crapola made a mistake , There isnt not just one test to test for PCOS there like a few of them...Had to retract that..
Found this somewhere;Hormone Level Testing: Testing testosterone, LH, FSH, and androstenedione levels. This test is one that doctors often use to determine whether you have PCOS or not.
