    Irregular period after thyroidectomy

    So my thyroid was removed about 3-1/2 weeks ago. My period is now about 10 days late. We only had sex with a condom like once in the past month. I am freaking out. I've heard adjustment to the medication/stress/thyroid hormone shift can cause major irregularities in your period. Anyone else have this? I am freaking out about pregnancy because I am just not healthy enough for it plus I don't yet know if I need RAI.

    My sister's period changes when her thyroid is underactive. She has bought a couple of pregnacy tests because she was late every months until they changed her meds.

    Surgery itself can also make your cycle crazy.
