    Hello Kylie:

    My name is Shelly and I am a nurse in the USA. I have hashimoto's thyroid disease.

    Yes, the pill will do that.  It does regulate the periods well. you must take them every day and then some sugar ones for 5 days, which allows you to have your period.  

    The bad side is the pill can play around with your Estrogen and make you feel ill from it.  It can cause problems in some women, and it can bother the heart in some women.

    Your Endo should advise if it is okay with your medical history, since you are on meds for anti-thyroid and we do not want to bother your heart.

    There is good and bad to everything.  Keep me posted on what they say,

      Hello Kylie:

      Wow Congratulations, on your soon to be wedding.  This year I will be married 25 years in July.  Time flies by.

      Ask for the birth control pills and it will regulate you better. You take 1 each day and you will not get your period until  you hit the sugar pills.

      So if the periods are longer and heavier so the Carbimazole is working on you to slow down the thyroid, since you have Hyperthyroidism.

      Check with your Endo and Gyno for their okay.
