I'm 25 and I haven't had a period since mid August 2011. I'm not pregnant, I took 2 tests, both negative. I get cramps almost monthly like PMS but no menstruation. I only have half a thyroid. The other half was removed along with a goiter when I was 12. I have never been told anything about abnormal levels and I was never put on medication(s) for it either. I just want to know if I'm weird or I can get some help for this.View Thread
My name is Bridget, I'm 25 and when I was 12 I had a sub-total thyroidectomy, to remove a large non cancerous nodule. At the time I hadn't gotten a period yet or started developing. I didn't get my first period until the next year in 7th grade, but I have never had a regular period since I started. It seems to come whenever. I have always thought that there was some sort of connection between my partial thyroid and my random periods. I brought it up with my Dr and he just kind of blew it off like I was stupid (then again when I knew I had mono he thought it was Hep . I'm married now and we want to have kids eventually, but with my random cycle I'm not sure if conception is possible. As far as I know my thyroid levels have been normal. I never had to take any meds after the surgery. I just want to know if there is any connection between the two.View Thread
