In brief: Maybe

The prep you are using can cause variable thyroid hormone levels.
Suggest contact your endocrinologist get a TSH Checked and find the right preparation. Variable thyroid hormone can cause many changes in your body. Best of luck

In brief: Sort of

The medicine you take for hypothyroid does not directly affect your period, however thyroid dysfunction DOES affect your periods.
In other words, if you are not on the correct dose of medicine, your periods can be affected. Always follow thyroid levels with your doctor as he or she has instructed. There may be other reasons your periods are off, so talk to your doctor about this as well.
