Hypothyroid and Ovarian Cysts,please help!?
I'm 18 yrs old,and 50 pounds overweight.I went to the doctors a few weeks ago due to missed periods (3).The doctor did and ultra sound and found cysts on both ovaries.She didn't say much about it,just that she would put me on Provera and Birth control to start my periods.I asked for a blood test also,because my grandmother and aunt both have thyroid problems.She called me 5 days later and told me I did infact have Hypothyroidism and prescribed me 50mcg of Levothyroxine (Synthroid).Although I don't have any symptoms of hypothyroid,just the fact that I'm overweight.I just have a gut feeling that I don't need this medication.I just stopped taking Provera 3 days ago and still have no period.I started Levothyroxine the yesterday and feel completely normal on it.I'm suppose to start my birth control also.But I'm nervous about it,the more I read about this online the more I think my doctor is a moron.I don't know why I have cysts,she didn't run any tests.She just prescribes me medications even though they probably shouldn't be taken together.Does anyone have experience with this kind of stuff? My insurance doesn't cover any other clinics,and I can't really afford to see any other doctors.What should I do? :(
