I performed two pregnancy test.Results were negative.But i still didn't get menses.Last mense date was 2nd feb.I have hyperthyroidism.Reason for delay?
May be thyroid: Hyperthyroidism can definitely affect fertility, ovulation, and menses frequency, duration, and flow. But if you've had the hyperthyroidism since February, and still aren't having periods, it may be time to look a little deeper. I would hope that your hyperthyroidism would have been treated and showing some response to treatment in 5 months. If so, the periods should become more regular soon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can children have hyperthyroidism? My son’s been anxious, can’t sit still and can’t concentrate. I thought maybe adhd, but the doctor says no. Now he’s losing weight, even though he eats a lot. Maybe more than usual. Could he have hyperthyroidism? He’s 6.
Yes, : Yes, this is possible. Grave's disease is relatively rare at this age, but certainly not unheard of. It is easy to test for with a simple blood test. That being said, out of a thousand children with the symptoms your child has at age 6, perhaps one would have hyperthyroidism as a cause. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I'll be doing radio iodine treatment for overactive thyroid and i'm wondering how this will effect me wanting to have children later in life.
should be OK but...: Radioactive iodine is a common ; effective treatment for hypothyroidism. It shouldn't affect fertility but you should avoid becoming pregnant for a year after treatment. The reason i don't love this treatment is that it usually results in hypothyroidism, but that can be treated. However, you might consider natural alternatives like homeopathy.

Higher risk: In general, when there is autoimmune thyroid disease in the family, the risk to family members is higher than that of the general population. However, if you have grave's disease, that doesn't mean your child will get it even if thyroid disease develops. Hashimoto's thyroiditis is also seen within families who have someone affected with grave's disease. ...Read more
Yes.: Most hyperthyroidism is due to graves' disease, which is an auto-immune condition. The immune system misclassifies a thyroid protein as not belonging to the person, and make antibodies that attack the protein. In graves' disease, the antibodies trick the thyroid into making more thyroid hormone. Like most auto-immune conditions, graves' disease occurs more often in women than in men. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Although it is probably best to get the hyperthyroidism treated first. Different treatment options can affect the timing of pregnancy. With surgery, once the thyroid labs are normal, it would be safe. With radioactive iodine, standard advice is to wait 6-12 months. With thyroid blocking tablets, it is best to wait 1 year after finishing the course of treatment (total 1-2.5 years). ...Read more

Light exercise: If someone has been exercising regularly, they can keep doing what they have been doing. If getting too short of breath to talk to a buddy, slow down or lighten up! avoid exercising in hot environments, as hyperthyroidism makes it harder for the body to regulate temperature. Probably not a good time to start exercising, but light walking probably ok for most. Do talk to your doctor first! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Graves' disease: Hi. Graves' disease is the most common. This is followed by subacute thyroiditis, which is followed by "toxic" (misnomer...not poisonous) or "hot" (misnomer...they're body temp) nodule(s). In there, you have to factor iatrogenic...usually thyroid cancer patients we deliberately make biochemically hyperthyroid. But good ol' Graves' is definitely in 1st place! Good luck! ...Read more
Not sure: This is not a typical symptom of hyperthyroidism. However there are 2 theoretical explanations on my mind: 1) your hyperthyroidism may make the muscles that move the vocal cords "shaky" as it does with other muscles. If that is the case, then it will return to normal when the hyper is corrected 2) the thyroid may be enlarged to a point that it affects the nerves that control the voice. ...Read more
