Hi,

Welcome to XXXXXXX

XXXXXXX is an oral contraceptive pill only.

Your doctor has prescribed you XXXXXXX to regularize your periods.

It will neither control tour thyroid nor help in loosing weight.

Your TSH is little high. Normal range is 0.3-4.0. You have not mentioned your T-3 and T-4 level.

Thanks for trusting XXXXXXX and posting your query.

Hope you found my response to your query informative and helpful.

If you have further concerns in this regard, I would be happy to discuss those with you as well.

With good wishes,

Dr.Chandra Shekhar Sharma

Hi,

Welcome again,

Your weight gain seems to be due to Hypothyroidism. You should consult your physician and start treatment of hypothyroidism.

In addition to treatment, you should do sufficient exercises daily, take balanced diet XXXXXXX in fiber in just sufficient amount, drink plenty of water, avoid sweets and fat(Oil & Ghee).

Hope you found my response to your query informative and helpful.

With good wishes,

Dr.Chandra Shekhar Sharma
