Thanks for posting your query.

Any change in pattern of menstrual cycle should be looked in to. If the pain in non specific and you are not having any major problem, you can wait.

With advancing age some hormonal changes do takes place and may affect the pattern and duration of cycle.

As you are hypothyroid please get your thyroid status checked on regular basis. Changes in level of thyroid also can lead to abnormality.

At present in my opinion there is no need for ultrasound. In case the pain or bleeding increases you should consult a doctor and then go for ultrasound as per advice.

I hope this helps.

Wishing you good health.
