Which natural and home remedies can a hypothyroid patient opt for inducing periods ?

I am 26/f. My period is late by 1 week now. I am not pregnant . I had blood tests and home tests that confirm it. I am hypothyroid and take medication for it (levothroid 137 mcg) Is there a way to induce period? I read about Vitamin C, cranberry juice or Parsley juice that induce period. But I don t know if these really have an effect.

Thanks for writing to us.
To induce your periods, the only way is to take progesterone - synthetic for 4-5 days and after you stop taking the tablets, the bleeding will start in 3-5 days. You can get these tablets prescribed from your gynaecologist.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

welcome to hcm

thanks for the query

you can wait some more days

if you are having this problem regularly then it may be due to your thyroid problem

so continue the drug provided by your gynecologist

dont take anything without consulting your doctor

if after 2 to 3 days if you still not getting your period then consult the doctor for other possible causes. if all thing is fine then your doctor may provide you progesterone pills.

take care
