Hi doctor,

I am a 24 year old lady and married. I have thyroid and irregular period sometimes. For thyroid, I am taking Eltroxin 75 mcg and I am in control. It has been two months since, I last got my period. We used condom while having sex. For three days, I had light cramps on and off in lower abdomen. Since two days, I am having nauseous feeling. Took a home pregnancy test and got negative result. Kindly suggest.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Irregular periods are not only be associated with thyroid but few other conditions too. Check this time for your periods. Suppose, you are still not getting, but having nauseous feeling and vomiting sensation, then I would suggest you to get a beta-hCG test done to rule out pregnancy.

Beta-hCG test is a blood test carried out that gives more confirmatory and accurate results even after home pregnancy test is found to be negative. No matter whether the results of beta-hCG is found to be positive or negative, I would recommend you to get an ultrasound of pelvis done.

If the ultrasound scan shows negative result, we can rule out the possibility of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). If the ultrasound scan turns out to be positive, we can know the pregnancy details. Medicine to get periods can be prescribed if pregnancy is ruled out.

Investigations to be done:

1. Beta-hCG and
2. Ultrasound of pelvis.

Regarding follow up:

I consulted a gynecologist yesterday. She did not suggest any test. Instead, she asked to me take Meprate 10 mg for 5 days and told I will get my periods once I stop the tablet. But, I have a feeling that I am pregnant. My main concern is, will there be any side effects on my pregnancy, if I take the tablet? Can beta hCG done without any prescription in any diagnostic centre?

First, I would suggest you to get a beta-hCG test done to rule out pregnancy. If pregnancy is ruled out, then you can take tablet Meprate 10 mg (Medroxyprogesterone acetate) as advised to get your periods.
