Re: Thyroid and Birth Control Pills
Saying your levels are "high" and "low" is confusing to me too - if your freeTs (FT4 and FT3) are high that means hyperthyroidism, if your TSH is high that means hypothyroidism. When you were on birth contol pill it was more likely to need more thyroid hormone as estrogen works "against it", when you quit the pill it is very possible to go a bit hyperT (it happened to me too - it was confusing and I was sure I was hypoT when actually I ended up needing a slightly lower dose). You can post your results here for us to look at. Your dose was reduced by how much?
