Is there a possible connection to this? My cycles have increased in length by ~ 3 days since I've gone up on my Synthroid, well, levotyhroxine. I went up because my symptoms were still subclinical and there was a thought that my O's would be stronger. They're 31 days long now. Is that enough to even worry about??

Hmmmm... I'm not sure. I actually think my cycle length went down when I was finally treated properly.

Since I see that you are TTC, I know many hypo ladies have low progesterone so I highly recommend getting that checked. By all outward appearances, I O fine... my charts look good, I have a thermal shift, a normal LP, O pains even but when they actually drew blood, my progesterone is low so I am technically anovulatory.

BTW, I've seen you around the TTCMA board but... I'm Amanda. It's nice to meet you!

My cycle get's long when I get on the side of hypo (as long as 43 days) and seem to get shorter when I lean on the side of hyper (28 days). I average between 30-33 at a 'normal' level (I take 175mg now)

I suggest testing your FT3 and see if you need to supplement that. Most hypo patients need both T4 and T3 supplements. Mine average 28-31 days and that's ok. It's well within normal range. I wouldn't worry too much unless your LP is really short (<10 days).
