I have a high level of calcium and hyperparathyroidism. I go see an endocrinologist in a week. The reason I went to see my Dr is because I have very heavy periods and was taking the Depo shot but stopped. Could any of these symptoms cause heavy periods?

In brief: Parathyroid

It is unlikely that an overactive parathyroid would have an effect on your periods.
With your high calcium and parathyroid levels you should have any parathyroid nodules surgically removed. Recovery is usually early and straightforward. You may be in the hospital for 24 hours after surgery. That would be a good day for a gynecologist to see you in the hospital about your periods. Wish you well!
