Welcome to our forum and I realise English may not be your first language but I want to question your word "HYPOthyroidism" due to the fact that if we are prescribed carbimazole it is usually due to having HYPERthyroidism.

This is an extract from the following link:-

1. WHAT ARE CARBIMAZOLE TABLETS AND WHAT ARE THEY USED FOR?

Carbimazole belongs to a group of medicines called anti-thyroid agents. It is used for the following:

Hyperthyroidism, which is a condition where in the thyroid gland is hyperactive. Carbimazole is used to reduce the formation of thyroid hormones

Treatment in more serious cases, for example, to restore the normal function of the thyroid before its partial removal by surgery.

It is also used together with other treatments for overactive thyroid.

If you have a print-out of your blood results with the ranges, post them so that members can respond :)

Our menstrual cycle can be disturbed if our thyroid hormones are not working properly.
