: I started taking birthcontrol pills in July 2000 until March 2000 during this time I gained 20lbs and my sex drive was lowered. Recently I had my thyroid checked and the doctor told me I have "borderline" thyroid problems but not enough to take medication. I need to go back in 3 months for a recheck. Can birthcontrol pills trigger a thyroid problem? Is this irreversible?

BC pills can increase the need for thyroid...quit taking the pills and your thyroid will function normally, if it was normal before. Any chemical we add to the body will increase the thyroid needs as thyroid balances all chemicals and hormones in the body. TF
