I need some guidance.  I just had my annual exam last Friday, 12th, and my obgyn asked how everything was going.  I explained to her that I was not happy, feeling extremely tired, sleep 9 1/2 hours at a night but still feel tired in the morning, loose much hair when showering, either really cold or hot, and want to eat everything. MY doctor conducted the TSH test and it came back 6.184 on the scale which they use 0.35-5.0. I am 28 and have been on depo-provera for 2 years.  I have read a lot about depo- having significant side effects.  What do you think?  Do you think I may have hypothyroidism???  Please offer some guidance.  I go see my regular doctor on MOnday
