Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
The symptoms that you have are related to thyroid hormone disturbance. Serum TSH levels need to be evaluated for proper dose regulation. Progesterone therapy may be needed to control the bleeding.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
