I've been doing some research and found out that being on birth control pills can affect how the thyroid hormones are absorbed and processed by the body, and if a woman takes oral contraceptives, she might need a higher dose of thyroid medicine. That may explain why I can't seem to get my levels regulated. I have low thyroid and I'm betting the pill is affecting how I'm absorbing the thyroid hormones in the pills.
I'm on levothyroxine, but I'm thinking of trying Armour, if my doc thinks my body might absorb it better. I'd like to give it a try. I've had my dosage upped several times and my levels are still out of whack.
