Hi Welcome to healthcare Magic

yes it is normal.. Patient suffering from thyroid disorder may have menstrual irregularities
like (Menorrhagia) excessive bleeding... Once your thyroid harmone is controlled, you will have regular periods.. then you can conceive again..

Dear normally after abortion bleeding last for 3-4 days.This is not the case with you.After abortion some irregularity like delay period is common.so there is no need to worry,but still you should visit your doctor for examination.bye.

Hi Moumita, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
It is absolutely normal to miss your Periods after an Abortion due to Hormonal Imbalance. They get delayed by one or two weeks. You can just wait for them to occur on their own, if they don't happen even after 2 weeks, you should be seeing your Gynecologist to rule out the exact cause. Also, your TSH is high, this can also be the cause. You will need medications for this. Speak to your Doctor.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.

I have been experiencing this type of hair loss for 9 months now. Blood tests for Iron deficiency and thyroid are normal. I have undergone treatment from a dermatologist which included monthly visits for Kenalog injections and use Clobetesal nightly. I did not have an appointment this month as the thought was it may be my last affected area. Now I have 5 bald patches ranging in size from a nickel to half-dollar. It is thought that it is due to emotional stress as my husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer last January and these spots started to appear the following March. My husband is undergoing chemo with little to not side effects and the treatment will add years to his life, so one would think I would no longer be stressed, I am grateful for that. I just don't know why these are still appearing and should I consider another method of treatment. I plan to schedule another appointment with my dermatologist and I am not sure what to ask for. Could you give me some alternative choices that I may be able to ask him about? I appreciate you being there. Thank you. Claudia Crowe
