Is possible to miss period while diagnosed with hypothyroidism? I thought periods were heavier. Should I see a gyn about this? Not pregnant. On pill.

In brief: Hypothyroidism

Usually with low thyroid the menstrual cycles are heavier but many times you cannot ovulate with low thyroid and then not have a cycle at all or maybe spotting.
The pituitary gland directs both the thyroid and menstrual bleeding so that common pathway way affect your menstrual cycle.
