Hi, Doctor my wife had a constipation health issue, so i took her to a hospital. Doc suggest some tablets and along with that that said to take a THYROID TEST.
1) When she went for test she had a Period. Took a report and saw the TSH level was 19.
2) Doctor suggested to take THYROX 50 mg for 3 months,
3) She took it for 20 Days, in between i took my wife for BLOOD TEST, Everything was normal.

hi, firstly, TSH is not altered by periods. secondly, it is erratic to re-do the test with in such short time with out consedering t3 and t4? the best option now is to go for free hormone levels which can finalize your answer. till then, there is no harm in continuing the tablet. hope this helped.
