Late Period - Stopped Taking Synthroid

 Hi ladies,

You all are so helpful, I was wondering if anyone might be able to help me out.  

Back in October I had light spotting weeks before my period.  It wasn't normal spotting, it was a light pink color that was only there when I wiped.  At first I thought it was my period, but it went away, and my period came a few weeks later.  

In the beginning of January, as my partner was pulling out after sex, the condom came off.  It came off in his hands, nothing spilled, and only the very tip of the condom was still inside me.  A few days, or maybe a week later, I got that same type of bleeding I had in October.  Not a lot of blood, very light pink color, only when I wiped.  It was there maybe two times that I went to the bathroom, and then disappeared.

Now I am not very diligent about tracking my period, but I know my period was due around the 18th-20th.  As of right now, I have not started.  I am having all my usual symptoms that I get before my period (cramping, lower back pain, diarrhea), but no period.  I have been pretty stressed about it, which I know doesn't help, so I've taken two pregnancy tests.  Both came back negative.  

Also, as a side note, I have hypothyroidism and Hashimoto's disease.  I am on a daily dosage of Synthroid, which I have not taken in about 3 1/2 weeks.  

I am wondering if anyone knows if my period is possibly being delayed because I haven't been taking my medicine?  Does stopping Synthroid affect your period?  Also, does anyone else have any idea what the light pink blood is caused by?  

Thank you so much for your help.
