Hi. My name is Amber, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism when i was a junior in high school. I guess no one ever thought it was important to inform me about my condition. I see that a lot of people here know their levels and everything. I just know i'm on 50 mg of Levothyroxin. I know that some people have told me I will never get pregnant. I have these wierd heart palpatations when i take any fom of birth controll, and instead of a monthly cycle i tend to go months without a period and then around 2-4 weeks bleeding. Can anyone tell me if you are experiencing simmilar things. I dont usually ask for help, nor reveal such detail with people i am unfamilliar with. I am afraid of doctors because i feel like the two or three i've delt with over time just think i'm nuts or a hypocondriac. I spelt that wrong i know. I guess if you can let me know what you think and know... thank you much
