Would a blood test to see if you are ovulating be the same as testing your thyroids?

I had my blood taken before to find out that I was not ovulating, I took provera and clomid to get preggo with my daughter. I am now with a new dr and I haven't gotten my period for three months so she will be checking my blood work next week to see if I am ovulating and she also mentioned she wanted to check my thyroids... my question is, would this be the same test? I know the test to see if you are ovulating tests your hormones, but would it also test my thyroids? I am only wondering because I want to know if my old dr would have seen a problem with my thyroids when I had the test done before for my ovulation.

  • If a thyroid panel was ordered then they could get that from the same tube of blood but those are different hormones being tested than your female hormone levels.

  • Dr s normally run the basic test with the extra test and the thyroid test is a normal test because its one of the big hormones what control a lot of ur body but that's what my Dr normally does
