Hypothyroid.: If I read your statement correctly, and I'm not sure I do, you are still hypothyroid and need to stay on the higher dose. Your numbers are somewhat confusing, but with your TSH still elevated at 4.57 on 75 mcg of Synthyroid you are not corrected and should not go down despite whatever the free T4 level is. In fact if you were my patient I would have increased your dose. ...Read more

Even then, endometriomas can be confused for other kinds of cysts. 37 years is not 'risky' in the usual sense, though risk of birth defects goes up a bit each year. Thyroid is not a problem if correctly medicated, subserosal fibroid it depends on "where" and "how large?". ...Read more
