Okay, I was diagnosed with hashimotos and have been also taking Prometrium for over a year. Doing really well on it. I also developed what appears to be a fibrocystic breast (just one) going to get a mammogram just to rule out anything bad, etc.
Well, recently, I have lost some weight...suddenly the breast condition got worse, I started spotting day 9 of cycle after stopping period on day 7 and I am having headaches. Had my progesterone tested on my 21st day which was a tad low, so my doctor is upping the dose. The odd thing is my symptoms with my breast are worse the week OF my period and the week AFTER (not before). What I am wondering, is could the weight loss have affected my thyroid which in turn is affecting my breast and cycle? If this is the case is it more likely that I am having estrogen highs or progesterone lows? I can always get tested for my thyroid and estrogen, I'm just wondering if losing weight could affect the thyroid AND in turn affect progesterone and/or estrogen?
