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).
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.
