Just found this in the comment section after a related article. Thyroid antibodies can attack ovaries & cause POF, & attack Adrenal system:

Weight gain is the primary side-effect from hypothyroidism and I went through menopause at 28 as a result. Menopause does not always happen - but only if the antibodies attack the ovaries as well as the thyroid, which happened in my case. Don't say it is not a result when you don't know. I have lived with this autoimmune disease for 30 years. If it keeps progressing, it wreaks havoc on your body. The step after attacking the ovaries is attacking the adrenal system which can cause horrible panic attacks as well.

Can I ask if you guys were tested for, I believe, ANA or autoimmune antibodies? My father died young of an autoimmune disease and I went into POF after having a pregnancy. I tested negative for ANA and continue to be "in the range" (supposedly, tested by regular physician) for thyroid. But I just can't believe that's true.
