Hello..just a quick question. I believe that my thyroid levels are out of wack due to a gioter that I will have biopsied in two weeks. I also have been very regular with my monthly cycle until this month..I started my cycle on day 22 and just got back for the ER because of excessive bleeding after 4 days.They put me on estrogen to ease the bleeding. Could the two, thyroid and messed up cycle be related?
When I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism I had been having irregular periods. It was then discovered that I was in menopause too at the age of 41. Three years later I am post menopause. So I would say that there is a connection between the two.
This is from the book "The Thyroid Solution":
A thyroid hormone imbalance frequently causes either heavy periods or brief scanty periods.
