Scanty Periods

Dear Doctor, I am a 29yr old female undergoing fertility medications for conception, married for 3yrs. LMP - August 27th. This time I started slight bleeding on 28th Sept only for 1day. No proper menstrual flow. I have got irregular periods right from my menarche (at 14yrs). I took Various allopathic/ayurvedic medicines before marriage to regularize my periods.After marriage started treatment with a family gynecologist, then shifted to infertility clinic. Every time I had got periods after taking Regesterone (Norethindrone)-5mg for 10days. After stopping tabs, I will get my periods on 3rd/4th day. Usually the flow will be full for 4days. I was given Progesterone tabs from 14th-26th day. But This cycle I am not under Estrogen/Progesterone tabs. I was prescribed low dose Thyronorm (25mg) tab for my high Antithyroid antibodies. My doubt is whether Thyroxine tabs has effected this scanty period or because I did not take any Progesterone Tabs my bleeding did not occur? Kindly clarify. Thank

You have already  developed a serious  hormone  imbalance  called autoimmune  thyroid disease. No wonder your periods are scanty and irregular.  If  untreated, it can lead to premature  ovarian  failure  where periods  can totally stop.
Next Steps
Good news is that it can be totally  reversed if you choose to do so. I have helped many people  reverse this condition and have healthy  natural pregnancies. If you  really  want  to  know  the root cause of your problem and heal it permanently ,  please  read my blogs on www.truhealing.com or practo health  feeds. Hope that helps....

Dear Practo user, Though one cannot say for certain, you might have conceived. Get Serum Beta HCG done and consult Doctor.
