Thyroid eltroxin side effects
I recently had half of my thyroid removed and have been taking 0.05mg of eltroxin for +/- 6 weeks. Since then I have not had my period. Can eltroxin or my thyroid have anything to do with this? I had my blood tested about 1 week ago and all is normal, but I do have some of the typical symptoms of an underactive thyroid.

Overactivity of the thyroid can cause your period to stay away.
