I do not get my period since weeks. I do not have a thyroid

Resolved Question:

I do not get my period since weeks. I do not have a thyroid anymore so I know this can effect this. I am not worried that I could potentially be pregnant...I just would like to know if there is anything I need to be aware of or if it is OK to just not get have a period for more then 6 month?

No it's not ok. It can lead to hyperplasia of the uterine lining which can eventually cause cancer. You need to be on thyroid replacement medication if you have no thyroid.

Oh, I am on Thyroid medication. I am taking it every day.

But my OBGyn checked everything and said...I am just not getting it right now?!?!

Should I see another doctor?

Thank you.
