My periods were horrible over a year ago. Lasting longer than normal, bleeding heavier than normal. No significant uterine fibroids to explain the increase in bleeding. However upping my thyroid meds a little took care of my symptoms.
Hypothyroidism can cause heavy or painful periods, and pre-e may raise the risk of later developing a thyroid problem.
