Hey all. Currently on 50mcg of levo for several months now, and for the past few months have had 27 day periods, down from my normal 30-32 days. This month... Nada. Currently on cycle day 34 and not even a hint beyond a tiny bit of period cramp but no period bloody came, excuse the pun.

Not pregnant unless I'm the Virgin Mary.

Hit send too quick oops. Has anyone else found levo messed up their cycles?

Before I started it they were always regular.

How recently have you had your dose reviewed? Seems like you may need another blood test / review

50 is a base dose - needs to be reviewed every month initially so it can be adjusted as needed

@Teddybear45 I've just been put up to 50mg and told they'll review in 8 weeks??

@Andysbestadventure I'm amazed you've said this as now you come to mention it - yes!! My cycles have been getting longer & longer and I've only been on 50mg for a month. I was on 25mg for 3 months prior and even then my cycle was going up to 40+ days!
