Hi there, I am a 38 year old female recently diagnosed with hyperparathyroid. Recently saw the ENT and after reviewing my routine blood tests dating back to 2006 - thinks that I probably started having issues back then. Tumor is visible on ultrasound but my levels are not super high: 10.9 and PPT at 128. I had debilitating symptoms of fatigue in 2006 and 2007, also accompanied by missed periods up to 4 months at a time - so I had lots of blood work done looking for the issue. My calcium was always high normal which the doc attributed to my being dehydrated. Wanted to get pregnant so saw a specialist and got pregnant almost immediately with the help of drugs. My periods came back during breastfeeding and were very regular up until I began to ween then they started back to the 2 month cycle. My question is if parathyroid could be causing this issue of missed periods or is it the low estrogen causing the parathyroid issue? I'd like to have another child so I'm very concerned - of course I have to have the surgery before I can get pregnant.
Looks like you have primary hyperparathyroidism which may increase the risk of miscarriage, I have not seen missed periods but this may be related. Low estrogen would not cause this parathyroid problem.
