Hi!
Welcome to healthcaremagic.com.Underactive thyroid can cause delayed menses.Normal menses should occur in 21-35 days anything less than 21 or more than 35 is definately not normal.please check T3,T4,TSH levels and adjust dose accordingly so that you get regular menses.

hi,
welcome to healthcaremagic forum
hypothyroidism may be the cause of your menstrual disorder.so you have to consult an endocrinologist and adjust the dose of thyroxine accordingly.that may correct your cycle.more than 60 day cycle is not normal.it has to be corrected.and also do an ultra sound scan to check the thickness of the endometrium

Hi. I m 20 and have had regular periods my whole life, always on time, always the same flow. My periods for July and August were late, VERY heavy, and accompanied with horrible cramps. Starting in the first week of September I started spotting, blood on a daily basis, sometimes heavier than others. Since September 9th I ve been having heavy bleeding along with head aches, lower back pain, bad cramping, mood swings, hot flashes, and sore breasts.I went to the doctor and after a blood test (pregnancy and thyroid), and ultra sound, she put me on birth control pills for 2 days until my prescription for depo-provera came in to the pharmacy. The bleeding slowed for 12 hours, and came back. I went back to taking birth control on a daily basis which has caused other adverse side effects as in, more severe mood swings, acne breakouts (my face hasnt looked this bad since i was 16), fatigue, nausea, along with everything else i have been experiencing. Any ideas on what is wrong with me? effective treatment?
