levothyroxin and birthcontrol
I have been taken Levothyroxin for my hypothyroidism since May of 09.  When I retested for this it came back normal as of July 27, 09.  But to continue keeping it at a normal level I am taking a lower dose.  My Doctor even placed me on tri-lo-sprintec birth control to prevent me being pregnant till i am in the clear and steady.   But i have been experiencing pregnancy symptoms and I have missed my period.  I called my dr. and the nurse told me I should wait 2 more weeks to take a prego test and I also may fear that I didn't follow the directions correctly to the birth control.  Please help me. Is my birth control being countered by the levothyroxin?
