Has anyone being in the same position? Is there any supplements I could take to try and improve the chances of me having periods? I've heard that Zinc or Black Cososh could help?
Visiting your physician is the safest way to diagnose and treat any health condition.
Certain foods and drugs may also interact with levothyroxine and cause side effects or affect its efficacy. So, the drug is taken in the morning, on an empty stomach. The user should not take any food for an hour after taking the drug.
When I was 17/18 I was put on provera, but reacted so badly to it, I felt suicidal, angry and was very aggressive. I have recently been tested again to see if I have gone through an early menopause and yet again it came back negative.
Minor Side Effects Usually, levothyroxine users experience some minor adverse reactions that may subside without any treatment. Such side effects disappear as the body gets adjusted to the treatment. However, you must inform your healthcare provider, who can guide you with some tips to prevent or reduce such side effects, which are given below.
Anybody tried these and had any luck? All my friends think I'm mad that I actually MISS having periods, but i hate not feeling womanly and just want some normality back into my life!
All of which came back negative. I am currently on 150mg of Levothyroxine but for the past 1-2 years my levels have all been normal. After nearly 7 years of not having periods and getting older I am worried about my fertility in the long run and what it could be doing to me inside.
If anyone could offer me any help, as I feel completely and utterly lost. So fed up Thanks, Anna
Wilansky tested for thyrotrophin releasing hormone in 67 women with menorrhagia who had normal concentrations of thyroxine and thyroid stimulating hormone. 4 Fifteen (22) had abnormal tests and were treated with thyroxine.
Menstrual changes, impaired fertility Extreme fatigue, sweating Decreased urine output, heat intolerance. Insomnia, irritability, hyperactivity Low mineral density is another condition that may develop in those who are using levothyroxine for a long duration.
Thyroxine is inactive and is converted by the tissues and organs that need. the hands (carpal tunnel syndrome heavy and, later, absent periods, deafness and).
Hi, Hope someone can help me or offer me some advice. I'm 22 years of age, when I was 15 my periods (started at the age of 12 and was regular) suddenly stopped.
Mar 4, 2000. EditorPrentice in his review of menorrhagia states that there is little. of hypothyroidism with thyroxine decreased menstrual blood loss.
Of the remaining 16 (whose test results were normal) nine (56) still complained of menorrhagia. These findings were later replicated in a study of women who had menorrhagia associated with intrauterine contraceptive devices.
In this study (which reported the women's perceived loss) and more recent studies in which the menstrual loss was measured 3 treatment of hypothyroidism with thyroxine decreased menstrual blood loss. Hypothyroidism may be greatly underdiagnosed as a cause of menorrhagia.
5 All the available evidence supports a causative association between hypothyroidism and excessive menstrual loss. Some of the study methods are weak by modern standards, but in the absence of evidence to the contrary the conclusion must be that hypothyroidism is a correctable cause of menorrhagia.
In short, use of right dosage of levothyroxine is not associated with any major side effect. The drug is often prescribed in individualized doses, which are adjusted according to the clinical and laboratory results.
