Hi there, Does anyone know if my condition can affect my periods? Ever since I was diagnosed in June my period cycle has been getting longer. I was a regular 28 day cycle for years but now it’s creeped up to 30-33 days. I completely missed a period in September but started early October making it 43 days in between. Would it be my condition affecting my periods or my medication? (Levothyroxine) I’m early 30’s and luckily all done with baby making. Currently using copper coil for contraception
Yes it's the condition. It can cause periods to be completely delayed in teens. Oddly it never affected mine that I remember but I've always been light till I had ds. My thyroid went when I was young though.
That’s strange that it’s the condition, as I had been undiagnosed for almost 2 years and never had a problem with periods until the month I was diagnosed. Is it something I need to tell my doctor about?
You could mention it. It might be linked to ageing too? I was dx at 20 way before children and never noticed any period change. They may have lengthened but I really don't remember. If anything were lighter but I think I'm in the minority there.
A friend had a partial thyroidectomy and then noticed her cycle became messed up. Tsh hovered around 3-4, not on thyroxine yet as I think they're hoping the other half will take over.
