Eltroxin and a late period
Hi

I was taking 0.05mg of Eltroxin a day and about 2 weeks ago my Doc increased it to 0.075mg after I had more tests done. Now my period is late and I' m wondering if it' s because of the change in dosage (I have done a pregnancy test which was negative (unfortunately). My cycle is normally around 26 - 29 days and I' m now on 35 days.

Abnormal thyroid function can affect periods. See what happens next month.
