Can Hypothyroidism Cause Cervical Dysplasia?
I have been hypothyroid for over 11 years. Recently, I have had issues with cervical dysplasia and found on the internet that excessive estrogen can be mistaken for hypothyroid symptoms and also cause this dysplasia. I have been married for 20 years and am absolutely positive that my husband nor I have not had relations with anyone else since the time we were dating. And even before that I am sure that my two other relations would not cause this. I can only assume my thyroid or is it estrogen has something to do with this. Is this possible?
Hypothyroidism does not cause cervical dysplasia. I'm not sure what you mean when you say that "...excessive estrogen can be mistaken for hypothyroid symptoms," but I don't think your cervical dysplasia is related to your thyroid.
