I got my test results and took them to "Dr. Uncle". My Estrogen was a little low, but the major surprise was that I got really wonky results for thyroid antibodies... So apparently I have Hashimotos's thyroiditis... I have a huge family history of hypothyroidism, and I can't believe that all my life they've tested TSH, T3 and T4, and no one thought about those antibodies until now. So now I'm on a progressive dose of Levotiroxin, and I need to get more tests done. On the "bright side" this could explain my menstrual irregularities instead of the supposed PCOS that never quite fitted the pattern.
