My thyroid level is 13.21 h my B12 is 1793 h I have a ovarian cyst. can this all be related?

Thyroid disease: Any thyroid abnormality, whether excessive thyroid hormone or less than normal can affect a woman's menstrual cycle, but either does not generally cause ovarian cysts.

Can an underactive thyroid and an ovarian cyst(10cm)have anything to do with each other, also period 1 week late, could either of these be causing this?

Can an underactive thyroid and an ovarian cyst(10cm)have anything to do with each other, also period 1 week late, could either of these be causing this?

Your cyst, at 10cm, is at risk of rupturing or turning on itself, called torsion. Have you spoken to a doctor about having the cyst drained or removed? No roller coasters, i've seen patients with big cysts get torsion from a coaster. ...Read more
