Hi Rochita.Roy,
When treatment for hypothyroidism is started the menstrual cycle gets shortened to your normal physiological range, but if you have a recent onset problem of the gland then your fixed dose may fall short because thyroid function might have gone down during this period which may contradictorily lenthen your cycle.
So get a fresh morning empty stomach sample of Thyroid function and if it is in expected range then A great news might be awaitng you round the corner- You might be expecting!
Anyway also get urine pregnancy test meanwhile.
Take Care!
