Thyroid and birth control?
Hi ladies. I have a serious question in regards to the thyroid and birth control. My thyroid has been off for several months and I have not be able to see an endocrinologist. I finally have an appointment on the 26th. I know my thyroid is off because I can feel it in my body. mainly when after 10 minutes of working out, I’m exhausted and want to give up. Recently, my local doctor told me it was off. Anyway, I’ve been struggling to know what to do when it comes to birth control. I have tried 2 different pills in the past 4 months.(I just started BC at the end of April because June is when I started to become sexually active) both these pills have caused me to have heavy bleeding and spotting when I am not suppose to. Is this because my thyroid is playing a factor? I really want to consider getting an IUD. If I do this, is this a safe solution when it comes to thyroid and birth control? What should be fixed first? My thyroid levels without being on BC? or should I try the IUD and monitor my thyroid levels while on that? Any advice you have would be so helpful! I’m so sick of my body being out of wack and not normal. Bleeding when I’m not suppose to is so annoying. Thanks everyone!
