Has anyone experienced their periods getting lighter?

I am 36 and my periods have become increasingly irregular over the past 6 months. Because of this, I went to the doctor and was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. My levels are now normal, but my last two periods were MUCH lighter than usual.... just spotting which lasts for about 7 days. Any ideas? I'm a bit freaked out.

  • this happened to most of the women in my family. you should read up on the functions of the thyroid and how they affect the body. Your period getting lighter might be one of them.
