Doctor :   ok you see there is a condition that is called as Metrorrhagia
User :   my first daughter was both after 2 years of marriage
User :   and doc says thyroid delays pregnency so we never used contraseptives
Doctor :   Metrorrhagia is the term used to describe bleeding between periods, or bleeding unrelated to the menstrual period.
Doctor :   Metrorrhagia can be caused by a hormonal imbalance
User :   yes
User :   she had that 2 years
User :   back
User :   you are right
Doctor :   Thyroid medications are hormonal and can cause certain hormonal imbalances
User :   at that time she had to take ferosac injection

Doctor :   your doctor is giving the right correct protocol of medications
Doctor :   May i kone your wife age please ?
Doctor :   know**
User :   she is 34
Doctor :   Dicynone is also given when there root cause if condition is not known
Doctor :   there is no harm
Doctor :   Infact it is the right drug for non schedule bleeding
User :   in that case should we reduice taking thyroxin to even 50 mg
User :   ionstead of 75?
Doctor :   No please don't change the dosage your self unless the latest lab test indicates so. Its not advisable
