... depression, weight gain around middle, irregular periods sometimes two a month sometimes skip months, moody, back and joint pain, depression, difficulty sleeping, cold extremeties, low body temp etc. A doc has finally agreed to start me on low dose armour thyroid but I'm scared. Will I lose more hair?? could this help me?? I got off birth control 3 months ago because after being on yaz for a year and then ortho lo for a year, the hair loss was not getting any better, and yes periods were regulated but they did not regulate moods and cramps and pain. My tubes were tied years ago so I don't need birth control for contraception issues. I am 36 years old, mom of two boys, and am devastated by this loss. Thanks
