Smile help pls

hi, new to this. I had a thyriodectemie at age 13 and for a few years have been on 125 mcg. levothyriod. for about a year now I have been dropped down to 100 mcg. but had no energy so, new doc bumped me all the way up to 150 mcg. for about a month now. my husband and I have been trying to concieve and my cycles have been really irregular especially last month and this month. I am now over two weeks late for period with nausea, dizziness, and fatigue but have been confirmed not pregnant by blood test. I feel like my equilibrium is off and I suspect that I have not menstrated due to low estrogen levels causing me to not ovulate. maybe due to my new higher doseage. so, now i'm very confused and feeling sick and i'm frustrated. anyone had a situation like this or know if too much thyriod hormone can cause low estrogen ovulation problems? thanx so much

Re: help pls

I know that your thyroid can regrow if you did not have I-131 after the Thyroidectomy. So that may be the case for you. Now as to the lack of menses, I think I would have my doc check my levels again, because if you are now hyperthyroid, due to the bump up in meds that can cause a lack of this. It may become very light to nothing if you are hyperthyroid. If your TTC then you need to really find a Gyno, and an Endo that will work together to keep you at your prime levels.
Good luck

Thanx for your response but yes I did have an I- 131. I went to my primary today because of dizzy spells and he seems to think that I am not getting enough doseage. So, I am getting more bloodwork done tomorrow. We'll see. Thanx again
