two embarrassing questions :)

Hi all... Happy New Year!
I have two embarrassing questions.
My TSH went from .005 to 24.710 in about 6 weeks. My Free T4 is 0.62.
I have been diagnosed with Hashimoto Thyroiditis and hypothyroidism. I just started taking 50 Synthroid mcg.
My questions are, first does all this relate to a lack of a libido? Is seems my interest in sex for the last few months has almost disappeared.
Second, I drink triple leaf green dieters tea to stay regular. It works like a charm. If I don't drink it I am so uncomfortable and bloated and have a hard time going. I just want to make sure I am not 'flushing' out my thyroid medicine. I take my Synthoid first thing in the morning at 6 and have my tea at 6 in the evening.
Thank you so much and I hope that wasn't to mush information

Low libido is a very common symptom of hypothyroidism.

I don't think the dieter tea will interfere with the thyroid hormones taken so far apart from the dose. Another way to deal with constipation is to try magnesium citrate to bowel tolerance. We are often very low in magnesium and this both replaces this essential mineral and relieves constipation.
