Women are more susceptible to alcohol in its short term and long term effects and there are genetic non-gender differences also. Aging and addition of RX meds like cholesterol meds puts more stress on the liver. ...Read more

Missed 3 periods,negatives pregnancy test.Hyperthyroidism not currently on medications. Can hyperthyroidism cause a false negative, or stop ovulation?
Hyperthyroidism ...: & hypothhyroidism, for that matter, can certainly affect ovulation. The thyroid really needs to function normally for healthy pregnancy & baby to result.
