recent irregular periods and hashimoto's

I was diagnosed about 2 yrs ago w/ Hashimoto's.  I am taking 3 grains of Armour Thyroid.  My periods are becoming more irregular.  They have been heavy up until May or June.  The time frame between periods from May to June was 31 days.  I started June 13th and have yet to start July's.  A couple weeks ago (maybe), I had a very slight, light pink watery discharge that lasted just 1 time (noticed after wiping from using restroom).  I can't possibly be pregnant, my husband had vasectomy about 7 years ago (although, he never took back a sample afterwards). I turn 35 Saturday and know that my mom started the menopause process in her 30's.  I don't know if this is Thyroid related  or perimenopause related.  Lately it doesn't seem as though the Armour is working very well if at all.  Had blood work done in April or May and numbers are fine.  I am so confused!

I will be turning 40 in a few months and I think at about my mid 30's I noticed that there were also some changes in the way my period was. I just started on thyroid meds, so I don't really know if my periods are different than they were before the meds. I have to keep a record of it I guess. Since you have been on meds it probably wouldn't hurt to go see your GYN. Have you had an exam lately?

I have noticed since my change over to Armour - my periods are odd too. I do have a bout of heavy and light situations too.

Really I deal with it. I do think it is the dessicated hormones - but compared to how I felt on other thyroid meds - I'll take this and work with it each month.

Bloating on certain months are hard for me. - but I just add in extra magnesuim to keep that at a minimum.

I too have very irregular periods and now they have stopped.  I am on levoxyl +cytomel.  My Dr. says it's not thyroid related.  current Tsh 1.  My t4 was normal, and my antibodies have dropped.  I too have taken 3 preg. tests and they are all negative.  I had my hormones tested and my ob says they are fine. ?????  i don't get it.  I have just chalked it up to the hashimoto's.
