Blood tests

Postby Lizzyh89 » Thu Jun 01, 2017 12:32 pm

i have very irregular periods - Iv had two this year, I have went for blood tests to check my thyroid. What's the possible outcome of this? I'm sure I have some sort of hormonal imbalance but not sure what they will do about it?? Any replys welcome!!

What did your thyroid blood test showed?!
Have you had any cd3 blood tests done?!
Any scans to check for pcos?!
You could induce ur period by taking progesterone.
If you have pcos metformin could help regulate your periods.
Also vitex is for hormonal imbalance.
I don't know what to suggest bcs I haven't dealt with irregular periods myself.
I hope someone else with more experience can help.
Good luck !!

Will update on results - nightmare for me ttc - never know when I'm due on or ovulating - unless I use opk or months and I dont think they are accurate using them this rate ... :/

Well if you are not having your period than you are not ovulating sadly.
Opks and temping should help pinpoint ovulation.
If your thyroid results are fine I highly suggest trying Vitex.

We have had early miscarriage a few years ago - not ttc. So I know it's possible.

But yes I agree I am prob not ovulating once a month like normal and just trying to pin point when I am. Very frustrating using apps ects telling me when Things should happen and there not. Will update on blood test results!

Doctors come back with one of my hormones is slightly raised - wasn't able to tell me which hormone. But didn't seem too concerned - I need to make another appointment with doctor to discuss. Not surprisingly to be honest I knew they must be off somehow - not sure what I can do really - what are the doctors likely to prescribe?

I can't really say until you don't know wich one is elevated,for example my TSH was over 4 when I stared ttc but my other hormones were fine so the doctor gave me Euthyrox(levothyroxine) 50mg every morning to drop my levels under 2.
Only your doctor can help you here.
Good luck!
