I have been on synthroid 50mcg for about 6 weeks now and am starting to feel a bit better. Does thyroid disorder affect your periods? I have been having irregular periods for about a year now. It moves by a week or two constantly or I have it every two weeks. I thought I was premenapousal before I found out my thyroid was low but my dr says I cant be because I have a period consistently. I have severe night sweats and heat flashes. I go through about 5 shirts a night! My doctor said it was because of my thyroid and the meds should help.
Do the hormones that effect your period interact with the thyroid? I don't know if that makes sense. I was just thinking maybe they go hand in hand sometimes. I am 36 so the drs say there is no way and as long as I am having a period, no matter how irregular, I can't be going through the change yet.
Maybe I should go to the board that talks about menapause?
