Any Doctors birth control and thyroid?

mes a day and the only time it stops (the bleeding) is when I take another pill and it will stop for a few hours because it overlapsthe dosage and makes it a lot stonger. A couple hours after its back to tons of blood and clotting. My doctor said shes waiting for results on my thyriod, but im afraid if I take something for my thyriod, it will make me gain a lot of weight. Not to mention that if I wanted to stop bleeding all together I would probably have to take 3 or 4 birth control pills a day! I dont get it. Before birth control I never had a period. I had secondary amenorrhea. Whats going on im sooo frustrated :( :(...

Thyroid gland?

isn't swollen from the outside, my thyroid, by touch, feels the same on both sides (not particulary swollen like a goiter) and the feeling is on the right side. I can feel it when I swallow sometimes or when my head is bent down. just a small pressure, no pain. the thing is, I've felt this before, a few weeks ago but it went away. I'm wondering if it isn't allergies or a cold virus but after looking at gland anatomy charts, it seems my thyroid is the only gland right there. maybe its a nodule? but wouldn't I feel it all the time and not just on and off if it was a nodule?

I had a thyroid test done...?

The result was 2.40, which the doctor said was "nearly ideal".
