Long period

I have been getting periods few days earlier (24 th day) and my periods starts very slow - -3 days spotting and 4 days regular with a couple of days spotting again - overall 10 day long. Is this becuase of the Hypothyroid that I have been recently diagonised? I am on titrating dosage of thyroxine (started with 25 for 3 weeks, 37.5 for another 3 weeks and now on 50 mcg).

Appreciate any info.

Thanks.

You don't mention your age, but it sounds like perimenopause to me????  Your doctor is doing the right thing...starting you off on a low dose and increasing you slowly.  What I would have given to have had your doctor!

Well, menopause is a possibility then I guess.  I know  that for several years before menopause my cycle had shortened (interestingly enough to about 24 days), and I had elongated, spotty periods.  Menopause is just a thought...it might be that when you get your levo dose stabilized, you'll go back to your normal cycle.
