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?
