OT - any moms here on hormone thereapy of any kind or have thyroid issues?
So long story short, I had severe preeclampsia in my last pregnancy in 2012, so I've seen lots of doctors since then for various things to check for underlying disorders, etc, etc.
Well during all this my general practitioner realized I had been steadily putting on weight for a while now and it's not stopping. No extreme change in my diet to make me gain and I've tried everything to loose it and I just can't do it.... so he checked my T4 levels, which came back normal. However he did not check my T3 or TSH.
On top of this, I've had another weird symtom... for about a year now I have had NO sex drive. Nothing. I'm 22 and otherwise healthy and I don't know why I do not have a sex drive! I am wondering if estrogen or something could help this?
I have quit taking my BC and anxiety medication to rule both of these out as factors and I still have not gotten better in either department.
My question is... has anyone else gone through this? Should I see my OB/GYN in regards to the no sex drive/estrogen medication? Or should I go to my GP to talk about that problem and get my thyroid rechecked? Could they be related? What would you do?
