I am a 27 year old who has been having breakthrough bleeds for 2 years. I have had all sorts of tests done and have stopped taking the pill.

Over the last 3 years I have put on almost 3 stone in weight which I can't seem to shift.

After researching the net I think I may have a problem with my thyroid although I have had a blood test which was "normal".

I have been doing the Body temperature test (http://allonhealth.com/hypothyroidism-test.htm) and my average waking temp is 96.9 which can indicate thyroid problems.

My question is how do I now go about getting treatment as my blood test was ok??

  • Go get a second opinion if you really think you have a problem. It took me 3 "opinions" to finally get a correct diagnosis of hypothyroidism. The "normal" levels that the doctors look for are unfortunaly very very loose guidelines. But, you're the only one who knows how YOU feel, and if you feel that something is off, then keep pushing. Good luck.
