I've been coming on the Soul Cyster message boards off and on for years as a "cyster", but thought I'd post in this forum for the first time. After trying to start fertility treatments with a course of Provera to bring on my "period", my doctors did some blood work to figure out why that basic drug didn't work for me (no period). I found out on Monday that it was ineffective because my thyroid is basically dead (my TSH came back >75... apparently at that level, the lab doesn't even give me a number for it, they just say it's greater than 75). This is day two of .088 mcg of levothyroxine(?). After 12 years of reading up on PCOS, I feel like I know a lot about that, but not so much about hypothyroidism. Can anyone give me any directions on some of the best places to look for info or other support forums?
Also, bizarrely enough, my FSH and LH were tested for the first time since I got diagnosed with PCOS 12 years ago (I've been on BCP the whole time) and they came back with a 1:1 ratio. Totally normal. Twelve years ago they were in a 10:1 ratio. Has anyone had any experience with their PCOS resolving once they get their thyroid treated? I'm kind of hoping for good things once we get my meds worked out.
Any and all advice welcome. I'm moving to NY state from CA in another 2 weeks, and will be starting from scratch with doctors, treatment, etc.
Thanks for taking the time to read this. I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone.
