Brief Answer: Progesterone tablets Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Thanks for the query. As you are having borderline thyroid disorder, that may be one cause for irregularity of your periods. So, better to consult gynecologist once and get evaluated. With her advice you can start tablets to correct the thyroid abnormality. And progesterone tablets can be taken to induce the withdrawal bleeding. In our hospital we usually recommend progesterone tablets like regestrone or meprate etc to induce withdrawal bleeding. But better to take after consulting your doctor only. Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer followup queries. If you are satisfied with the answer, please give your review at the end of the discussion. Take care.
