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.
