The thyroid gland does not create enough thyroid hormones in hypothyroidism. Many of the body's functions slow down as a result, and the menstrual cycle can shift as a result. Hypothyroidism can alter coagulation factors, putting you at risk for significant bleeding. According to McConnell, hypothyroidism can cause heavy periods, nonexistent periods, or irregular periods in women of reproductive age, with the severity of the hypothyroidism affecting the symptoms of menstrual abnormalities.
