Menstrual Cycle And Tsh Levels
my TSH value on first day of menstrual cycle was 6.24 mIU/L. however, a repeat sample on day 3 showed 3.66 mIU/L. should i be concerned??
The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more
I'm 49 and had my thyroid removed 5 mo. ago my levels are good but my tsh is on the low side i now haven't had a menstrual cycle for 3 months having hot flashes and night sweats. had this before surgery but as soon as tsh was higher body was normal ?
Thyroid: If you had your thyroid removed you must have had Synthroid (thyroxine) prescribed and that would have little, if any, impact on your TSH. Your main problem is likely to bean issue with your menstrual cycle and you should see a Gynecologist as soon as you can. Please let me know what develops. ...Read more
Tsh level 10.49 today,am taking electroxin 25mcg.my mestrural cycle also iregular ,sometimes hard to stop bleeding,some times only after two months.suggest a dose pls?
Not the TSH: It's not the TSH that can delay or alter periods, it's the thyroid abnormality that the body is trying to fix by increasing your tsh. No matter what your thyroid problem is, your doctor can help you keep your level normal, which should help regularize your periods unless you have another underlying gyn problem. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I am 28F. i am having normal T3 (liothyronine) and T4 levels but TSH is 18.6. What will be the effect of this? i have pcos from my starting of menses
Hypothyroid?: While screening patients for thyroid disease, physicians often find increased (TSH) levels in patients with free thyroxine (T4) levels are not below normal. “Subclinical hypothyroidism,” most commonly an early stage of hypothyroidism. On average, women with PCOS have higher TSH levels and are also more likely to have subclinical hypothyroidism when compared to age-matched controls without PCOS. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Weight gain, irregular menstrual periods and acne. TSH - 6.50 ulU/ml, Free T3 - 4.28 pmol/l, T4 - 13.85 pmol/l. Take Eltroxin for hypothyroidism?
TSH of 6.50 is...: A TSH level of 6.50 is too high, but there is no clear question being submitted here. If one's TSH was even higher in the past, then this would be an improvement. If one's TSH was lower in the past, then this would be a worsening. One's primary care doctor or one's endocrinologist can evaluate... and help answer the patient's true question, whatever that question might be. ...Read more

Can TSH 2.65 cause infertility? Im 33 taking levothyroxine 25mcg frm 50dys, now TSH- 1.95 but my menses stopped. should I take Levothy? try'g for baby
Normal TSHs: Hi. Both those TSHs are normal, so assuming you don't have pituitary disease, your thyroid was functioning normally with TSH 2.65 and your thyroid function is still in the normal range on the low dose of l-thyroxine with TSH 1.95. If your menses stopped, that's nothing to do with your normal thyroid function. Do a pregnancy test. Maybe you & your man succeeded! Good luck. ...Read more
I have no symptoms of hypothyroid, my menstruation cycle is regular, i go to gym for about 1 hour, i feel healthy. But my TSH is high. Why is it so?
Hypothyroid: In the early stages of hypothyroidism you may have no symptoms at all. Frequently it is diagnosed by a screening blood test for tsh. This is called the subclinical stage, when the only indication of hypothyroidism is elevated tsh. It would also be helpful to know what the value of your free T3 (liothyronine) and free T4 are. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Had TSH 2.65, is it hypothyroidism? taking levothyroxine 25mcg and now its 1.95 but menses cycle is 37days or no mense. will it be okay to stop levoth
Not hypothyroidism: TSH of 2.65 is within the normal range. Some people feel better when their TSH is lower within the normal range, closer to 1.0, but if supplementing your thyroid hormone is causing menstrual irregularity, then would recommend that you discontinue the levothyroxine. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My TSH is 21 uiu/ml, my menstruation cycle is regular, i ovulated last month on 17th day of my cycle. Can i try to concieve? Or wait til TSH is normal
Wait and Fix TSH: We have good information that the baby will be healthier if the TSH is < 2.5. Your value is quite high and should be treated before conception. Your gyn, pcp or an endocrinologist can assist you. It should only take a few weeks to control the thyroid issue but the wait is worth it.
