Can I give blood samples for thyroid when I have my periods? - Online Doctor Chats
I am XXXXXX
How are you?
I am good ty
when did you give your last sample?
I have an appointment tomarrow whith an doctor
I wanted to check the thyroid
the sample is usually given before you take the medication in the morning
I think you can give it during your period
After delivery i stopped the medicines
There is no variation in the level due to periods
thought i will check thyroid and continue to take the medicine
I think it would be a better idea to get tested first
When was your delivery?
24th Aug 2011
and you have not taken the medication since then?
Then dont start taking it
Give a sample first
and then lets see
but my doctor said to continue after delivery also
infact said to continue till my death
we usually test first Varalakshmi and then continue the medication
the severity of the problem decides the dose
how many times if the 10 month baby pass motion a day is ok
It will depend from baby to baby
Some babies pass just once in 2-3 days
even that is normal
So if your child is well and has a particular set pattern, I dont think you should worry about this
Thank you very much
Is there anything else I can help you with?
