If you stop taking your thyroid meds, that may cause your period to stop. Also, if you are pregnant, your baby is at risk of serious defects if you don't take your meds. You should see your doctor , and discuss whether you are pregnant, but also if it is okay to stop taking them, or if you still need them.

Anon - Have you been using home pregnancy tests? You can contact your doctor's office and arrange to take a blood test to get an accurate answer.
