Birth control and test results?

Forgot to ask in other post,
but does birth control pills (yasmin) effect any test results for the thyroid?

I know the Total T4 can be elevated, but any others? Thank You.

Re: Birth control and test results?

I have been looking for the anwer to this as well. Estrogen and progesterone do mess with labs. We are supposed to tell the lab if we use these things. I don't know exactly how, but they do either elevate or make the appearance of elevated t4.
Maybe someone will come on here and make us understand.

I was told to be sure to get FREET3 and FREET4 tests, NOT TOTAL!
