  • your best bet is to visit the doc... there are a variety of things that could be going on - too many to name, and some would just make you worried.

  • You need to get the hypothyroidism under control. If you aren't on any hypothyroid meds you might want to re-check your levels including free T4 and free T3. Being hypo does screw with your cycle and does cause weight gain. I have not heard of anyone having hypothyroid who didn't need the medication.

  • I have a similar problem. June i had a period for a week i was off for one day and back on for another week. I always have a pretty heavy period and always on Cd1, i also have a few cramps on this day two. Im am concerned because last month i had what i thought was a period. I came on on the 26th june i have spotted throughout my cycle and had one day where i was really heavy. it is now 12th of july and i am still spotting and it has a really unusual odor. Does anyone have any ideas what this could be? x
