Thyroid + fertility: Thyroid function can strongly influence the rhythm of lh and fsh. This leads to ovulation. Make sure your thyroid hormone is appropriately replaced.

Depends: It depends upon the reason for your thyroidectomy. In addition, you need to make sure that you are on an appropriate dose of brand name T4 replacement. You periods should then normalize to what they would be if you never had a thyroid problem.
