Hi. I'ma 29 year old female. I was diagnosed with hypothyroid a few months back and was put on Thyroxine. I had no symptoms of thyroid except weight gain. So far my periods have been absolutely normal and regular since it started. After taking thyroxine, my hair started to shed a lot, skin started to feel dry and flaky, I became extremely moody and lethargic and things kept getting worse. I went for a second opinion. I had a bunch of tests done. I was told that it is a Vitamin D deficiency and to stop thyroxine. I still have a slightly swollen thyroid gland, although not noticeable. I have started losing weight gradually, but noticeably. my skin and hair feel normal again. But the worst hit were my periods. When I started taking thyroxine, it almost stopped. Except a little stopping nothing ever happened. It was still on time and was accompanied with severe cramps, as usual. But it has been 2 months since i stopped Thyroxine and my periods a not at all how they used to be. They are extremely less and I don't know what to do. The doctors are playing trial and error with my body. I hate it. I hate the side effects of every medicine they give. No one is accurately diagnosing me. I'm to get married soon and would like to have a family. Any help anyone?
