Can Hypothyroidism Cause Cervical Dysplasia?

11/15/2006

Question:

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?

Answer:

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.
